PTI puts Pakistan’s economy in a precise way, says Firdous

ISLAMABAD: Special Assistant on Information and Broadcasting Dr. Firdous Ashiq Awan has stated that the country has been put on the right economic track.
In a series of tweets on Friday, she said Pakistan’s improvement in the World Bank’s Ease of Doing business ranking is a clear proof of it. She said it is the first time in the history that the national exchequer is getting filled instead of the pockets of rulers.
The Special Assistant on Information said the World Bank’s report would also have opened eyes of those who up till now were misleading the people regarding the country’s economy.
Firdous Ashiq Awan said a bright and progressive face of Naya Pakistan is emerging in the world. She said it is under the leadership of Prime Minister Imran Khan that the country witnessed a historic improvement of twenty eight places in the World Bank’s ease of doing business rankings.
She was confident that steps directed towards ease of doing business will prove to be milestone for investment promotion and industrial development.
In what appears to be the highest-ever upward shift in a year shown by a country, Pakistan climbed 28 places and rose to the rank of 108 in the World Bank Ease of Doing Business index and landed in the club of world’s top business climate improvers.
In its annual report released on Thursday, the World Bank said the enactment of six regulatory reforms, including a concerted improvement in business regulation, had improved Pakistan’s overall ranking that would improve the country’s image for attracting investments.
Global investors use the World Bank’s index as a guide to learn about the business environment of a country before making any business plan. Taking to Twitter, Prime Minister Imran Khan said Pakistan had achieved the biggest improvement in its history in World Bank’s ease of doing business rankings. “Over last decade Pakistan’s ranking had slipped more than 50 places. Now we have improved 28 places from 136 to 108,” he added.
He said this was another commitment of his manifesto that was achieved. “I want to congratulate all the people in our government who worked hard to make this happen. We still have a long way to go. In Sha Allah, before the end of 2020 Pakistan will become one of the top places for investment,” he held. – NNI
