LAHORE: Mian Kashif Ashfaq, Chairman Faisalabad
Industrial Estate Development and Management Company (FIEDMC) Tuesday said
Pakistan is pursuing the policy of promoting stronger trade links with
regional countries to increase its exports and slash the trade deficit
under the guideline of Prime Minister Imran Khan’s vision.
Presiding over a FIEDMC annual meeting of board of directors via video
link from camp office here, he said the government is determined to steer
Special Economic Zones towards promoting regional trade and export-led
growth besides encouraging investment culture in the country. He said
Allama Iqbal Industrial City provided huge opportunity for the foreign and
local investors under one window operation.
“Economic sovereignty is the key to comprehensive development,” he said
regretting that this was generally ignored and weak stance adopted by
previous political governments exposed the country to steady increase in
the energy cost affecting entire economy.
