PM demand coordinated efforts to attract foreign investment, boost exports

ISLAMABAD – Prime Minister Imran Khan has directed the foreign office and envoys posted abroad to rise to the occasion and promote image of abroad through proactive economic diplomacy.

Addressing the concluding session of the two-day Envoys Conference on Economic Diplomacy in national capital tonight, he said as economic challenges couldn’t be tackled through “business as usual” approach, a complete coordinated and team-work effort by various ministries and departments was required to confirm ease of doing business, attract foreign investment and boost exports in the country.

He said the nation has to change its mindset of depending on others and build coordinated national efforts to convert this challenges at different fronts into opportunities.

He regretted that our elites have ditched the country at international level for their own vested interest. He said past rulers projected themselves as progressive and painted rest of the nation as extremist, causing an enormous injury to the national image.
