Govt believes in liberal, private sector driven economy: PM

ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Muhammad Nawaz Sharif on Tuesday said his government believed in liberal and private sector driven economy.

“Our efforts are aimed at ensuring ideal business environment for the private sector, as governments are not meant to do business,” he said while talking to President World Bank Dr Jim Yong Kim.

He appreciated the support of World Bank in Pakistan’s economic growth.

Nawaz Sharif said the government was making all-out efforts to bring improvements in every sector of the economy. He underlined that the assistance of World Bank for Dasu Hydropower Project and Tarbela-IV Extension Project will help the government in improving the energy mix and reduce dependence on expensive fuels.

The World Bank president expressed full support for the government’s tough economic decisions and said that the bank supported the structural reform agenda.
