ISLAMABAD:Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif on Tuesday said the provision of maximum relief to the masses and economic development would be among the Federal Government’s priorities in the upcoming budget for fiscal 2023-24.
The prime minister, chairing a meeting to discuss the budget proposals for the industrial sector, said the federal budget would also encompass the measures to enhance industrial growth as well as exports.
He said he would personally make sure that the proposals coming for the industrial sector were incorporated into the budget.
The prime minister instructed the authorities concerned to remove all unnecessary impediments in the increase of small, medium and large-scale industrial production.
He told the meeting that the previous government deliberately obstructed the investment and industrial development in the country.
The previous government violated the agreement with the International Monetary Fund (IMF) to save its rule, making 220 million of Pakistan bear its brunt, he added.
