LAHORE, Sep 25 (APP):Punjab Governor Ch Muhammad Sarwar has
said that economy could not be strengthened without providing basic amenities and secure
environment to the business community.
Talking to a 28-member APTMA delegation led by Gohar Ijaz at
the Governor’s House here on Tuesday, he said, the provision of
basic amenities of life to the masses, poverty alleviation, and
putting Pakistan on the road to progress and prosperity were
the top priorities of the Pakistan Tehreek e Insaaf (PTI) government.
The Punjab Governor said that business community could play
its vital role in keeping the wheel of progress moving, adding
that country’s progress was dependent on the collective efforts
by people from all walks of life.
Appreciating the role of business community in progress, he
said the businessmen create job opportunities besides strengthening
economy through exports and paying taxes.
Sarwar said, PTI had taken a revolutionary decision to provide
gas to factories in Punjab on cheap rates, adding that the initiative
would enhance exports and promote textile industry in the province.
The Punjab Governor said the overseas Pakistani were being
invited to invest in the fishing sector, adding fish farming would
generate jobs in the villages.
Sarwar said his biggest wish was to provide clean drinking water
in the cities of Punjab, claiming 1.1 million people in the country
die annually of drinking polluted water. He urged the APTMA members
to install water filtration plants at their factories to provide
clean water to the labourers.
APTMA Chairman Ijaz Gohar felicitated Punjab Governor on his
elevation as Punjab Governor for the second term.
