World acknowledges economic progress of Pakistan: PM Nawaz

LAHORE, Pakistan: Prime Minister Muhammad Nawaz Sharif Saturday said the world appreciated the economic gains achieved by his government in the shortest period of time.

Foreign reserves of the country had swelled to about $21 billion, which were hovering around at only $2 to $3 billion before 2013, he said while responding to a query of media persons here after conveying his condolence over the death of father of former Nazim, chairman Punjab Group of Colleges and chairman Dunya Media Group Mian Amir Mehmood.

The Prime Minister said that the trickle-down effects of his government economic policies could be witnessed in slashing of prices of petroleum and other basic daily-use commodities.

He said “The inflation has been brought down by 2 per cent, prices of daily-use items were cut down, electricity is being supplied and the wheel of industry is moving.”
