ISLAMABAD: Chief Minister Punjab Sardar Usman Buzdar Thursday said that his government would take all available resources to boost small and medium businesses in the province to eliminate poverty.
He said Pakistan had the talent but lacked skills and that the government’s main focus will be on skill development so that people can perform their best.
Addressing a reception hosted in honour of Governor Punjab Chaudhry Muhammad Sarwar, Buzdar said the government has accepted the challenge to offset looming economic crisis, besides reviving the industrial sector and restoring the confidence of investors.
The event was organized by Pakistan Furniture Council (PFC).Federal Petroleum Minister Ghulam Sarwar Khan was also present on the occasion, says a press release issued here.
Buzdar said that Pakistan loses a huge amount of foreign exchange on import that could be reduced by encouraging the local industries to grow by patronizing them.—APP
