Proposals For Upcoming Budget. Public Relief, Economic Development Among Priorities: PM

Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif has said that the provision of maximum relief to the masses and economic development would be among the federal government’s priorities in the upcoming budget for fiscal 2023-24.

Chairing a meeting to discuss the budget proposals for the industrial sector, the Prime Minister said the Federal Budget would also encompass the measures to enhance industrial growth as well as exports.

He said that he would personally make sure that the proposals coming for the industrial sector were incorporated into the budget.

The Prime Minister instructed the authorities concerned to remove all unnecessary impediments in the increase of small, medium and large-scale industrial production.

He told the meeting that the previous government deliberately obstructed the investment and industrial development in the country.

The previous government violated the agreement with international monetary fund to save its rule, making 220 million of Pakistan bear its brunt.

He said being a resilient nation, Pakistanis are gradually coming out of the economic difficulties.

Prime Minister Shehbaz said the government, the whole nation, industrialists and the business community were working hard to improve the country’s economic situation.

He said throughout the previous year, the miscreants inflicted damage to the country through “long or short” marches and sit-ins.

The Prime Minister directed his Advisor Ahad Cheema to finalise the proposals from the industrial sectors and ensure their incorporation into the Budget.
