World Bank official praises Kamyab Pakistan Programme
ISLAMABAD: World Bank Vice President for South Asia Hartwig Schafer in a meeting with Prime Minister Imran Khan on Thursday termed Ehsaas a unique socio-welfare programme and expressed confidence that the Kamyab Pakistan Programme would also prove exemplary.
Schaffer told the prime minister that the World Bank was appreciative of Pakistan’s socio-welfare programmes, aimed at poverty alleviation and social security.
The World Bank was working on a number of projects in Pakistan and was interested in providing full support to the social security projects, he said, and commended the government’s economic reforms and smart lockdown policy during the Covid-19 pandemic.
Highlighting the features of Kamyab Pakistan Programme, Prime Minister Imran Khan said it will be launched soon. Under the programme, the government would provide soft loans to farmers, affordable accommodation and ensure ease of doing business, he added.
He thanked the World Bank for extending cooperation to Pakistan in difficult times and said that one of the top priorities of the government was to provide protection to the economically weaker sections.
Prime Minister Khan said that as the prices of commodities had risen 40 per cent worldwide, the government was trying to provide relief by reducing the burden on the people.
The government was focusing on providing employment to the youth of this country, as its top priority.
