Trade deficit reduced by 8%, remittances increased by 9%: Firdous Ashiq Awan

ISLAMABAD, Pakistan: The Prime Minister’s Special Assistant on Information and Broadcasting Dr Firdous Ashiq Awan has said that despite payment of record debt during the financial year 2018-19, trade deficit was reduced by eight percent while remittances witnessed an increase of nine percent.

In a series of tweets on Thursday, Firdous Ashiq Awan said that the economy is heading towards improvement as a result of difficult decisions taken by the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government.

The special assistant said that the flag bearers of dynastic politics are disturbed that why did Prime Minister Imran Khan rid Pakistan of the dictatorial rule of two families? She said that under the garb of Charter of Democracy, these flag bearers of dynastic politics had also fixed the turns of their children.

Firdous Ashiq Awan said that the people of Pakistan foiled their plot by giving genuine mandate to Imran Khan.
