ISLAMABAD, Dec 9 (APP):Prime Minister Imran Khan Monday advised his economic team to duly publicize the economic reforms made by the government and their outcomes, in order to counter the baseless propaganda by some mafias.

Chairing a meeting of his economic team, the prime minister said that unfortunately some individuals were making baseless propaganda on a crucial subject like economy, just for the sake of their personal gains.

He said such malicious attempts could only be repudiated if the economic team communicated truth to the masses regarding the measures and headway achieved by the government on economic fronts.

The meeting discussed in detail the overall economic condition, pending court cases concerning Federal Board of Revenue, facilitation of expatriates to send remittances, revival of the Pakistan Steel Mills, and steps to pass on the benefits of the economic stability to the people.

The prime minister told the meeting that the government’s efforts for the economic stability had brought about remarkable outcomes.

He said there were the clear signs of the economic stability in the country that had been crippled by serious challenges. This would follow the course for economic development, he added.

The prime minister said even the international institutions were also acknowledging the improvement of the economic indicators and stability which also revived the confidence of both the local and foreign investors.

He told the meeting that after achieving the economic stability, the government was making efforts to provide maximum relief to the people despite resource constraints.

He said the multifaceted initiative of Ehsaas launched by the government for poverty alleviation and social protection manifested the government’s priorities.

He said besides making untiring efforts for overall economic development, the government was also ensuring the supply of daily use items and eatables to the common man on reasonable price.

Mentioning the government’s efforts against hoarding and profiteering, the prime minister said modern technology was also being introduced to bring about transparency and corruption.

He directed the economic team to resolve the pending cases related to the economy on priority to make the economic journey continue uninterrupted.
