LAHORE: Caretaker Federal Minister for Information, Broadcasting, National History & Literary Heritage Barrister Syed Ali Zafar sunday said that China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) is a golden opportunity for the upcoming government to tackle future challenges of the economy.
Speaking at a discussion on ‘Opportunities And Challenges After
Elections’, organised by the Human Rights Society of Pakistan, he suggested that the upcoming government should evolve a policy while keeping in view the economy at macro level, instead of micro level.
“No doubt population, exports and minimisation of import will also be a challenge for the next government,” the minister added.
He said a major challenge was terrorism and the war against terrorism was still going on in the country.
He said that the interim government was working as per its constitutional mandate and taking decisions of urgent nature only for the sake of the country.
