CPEC projects will be completed on priority basis: PTI MNA


KARACHI: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) MNA Nusrat Wahid on Monday said that Saudi Arabian assistance would improve the economic condition of Pakistan.

“This will also increase economic activities and the country will soon be out of the economic crisis,” she said during a meeting with the representatives of the business community.

“Due to the previous government’s wrong economic policies, the country had trapped in a swamp as a result, the rupee value had further depleted and the US dollar rate had gone up,” she added.

Wahid said, “Increase in investments, reduction in poverty and lower commodity prices are the main priorities of the present government, while investors’ confidence will be restored soon. We will make the country a centre of economic activities while CPEC projects will be completed on the priority basis.”

She said they would provide full assistance to the local as well as foreign investors and also ensure them basic facilities. The present difficulties are temporary and all promises made with the public will be fulfilled, she said.

The MNA said that overseas Pakistanis should play their due role to improve the economy of the country and increase the foreign exchange reserves of the country. We will pull the country out of the economic crisis, she concluded.
