PRESIDENT SEES ECONOMY ON RIGHT TRACK

KARACHI - President Mamnoon Hussain Saturday underlined the need for right policies and their continuity to ensure better economic growth in the country.

He said the country was moving towards general elections and it was vital for the business community and the people in general to support those, who were delivering to the country and nation. The President was addressing the business community at 10th Export Trophy Awards of Rice Exporters Association Pakistan (REAP) here.

He said our region was confronted to extremism and terrorism that damaged the economy of the country. However, through wisdom and statesmanship the government has succeeded to handle these challenges. Now, peace has restored in the country and the economy was on the right track.

He praised the role of REAP in the progress and development of the country and hoped it would continue its efforts more efficiently in future. He expressed his satisfaction that REAP has proved itself as a strong bridge among the rice growers, rice millers and the exporters of the country. The basic role of all the professional representative associations was to struggle for establishing strong rapport and working relationship among all the stakeholders of the respective sector/industry and get better facilities for them to the ultimate benefit of the country.
