Govt takes concrete measure to bring structural changes for sustainable economic development: Ishaq Dar

KARACHI, Jan. 20 (APP): Federal Finance Minister Senator Muhammad Ishaq Dar Friday reaffirmed PML-N government’s commitment to get the proposed law against corruption passed through Parliament.
He was addressing the brokers and other businessmen at the formal
signing ceremony of equity share purchase agreement between Pakistan Stock Exchange (PSX) and Chinese consortium, at the PSX Building here.
The finance minister said despite the hindrances created by some
political parties, the government would easily sail the bill through Parliament. “We can do it also through join session of the Parliament,” he
added.
Pakistani citizens, under the proposed law, would have to declare their
assets held abroad, and it would be very effective to check money
laundering in future.
He observed that the Securities and Exchange Commission of Pakistan (SECP) issued 42,000 notices to the companies mostly in Karachi without due
consultation with the ministry of finance.
The finance minister asserted that the government is determined to put
the things in the right direction within legal framework.
