Pakistan’s Finance Minister Mr. Ishaq Dar announced a “future roadmap” for the country, aiming to achieve more than seven percent growth in the next three years.

While he was speaking at an international investment conference in the capital, Mr. Dar stated that improving the social and economic situation in the country and dealing with poverty and unemployment was crucial to achieve the desired rate of growth.

Reassuring foreign investors, the Finance Minister also stated that the government will remove all hurdles in their way and will deal with elements which negatively affect the country’s economy.

“National interest is supreme and the government will pursue economic development no matter what the impediments are,” he said.

Pointing towards the positive steps taken so far, Mr. Dar mentioned the Investment Strategy plan 2013-17, campaigns to promote foreign direct investment, creation of special economic zones and better coordination and communication with investors.

The current government is also reviving the privatization programme, disinvesting in major organizations like UBL and OGDCL. Moreover, Mr. Dar’s plan also aims to bring down inflation and fiscal deficit while improving foreign exchange reserves and industrial growth. He also intends to lower the public debt, increase exports and deal with the country’s power and energy crisis.
