Gilgit-Baltistan Chief Minister Barrister Khalid Khurshid expressed his wish to Sardar Tanveer Ilyas Khan that the Punjab government should also provide assistance in investment and trade in Gilgit-Baltistan. Sardar Tanveer Ilyas Khan said with the efforts of Punjab Chief Minister Usman Bazdar not only the problems faced in Punjab regarding investment and trade are being solved but also the volume of investment in Punjab is increasing and Punjab is moving ahead even in trade. The government of Balochistan is also being assisted in these areas. He said that in the light of the directive of the Chief Minister of Punjab, Gilgit-Baltistan like other provinces and regions would also be included in this stream.
