President invites expats to benefit from Pakistan’s secure investment policies
DUBAI: President Dr Arif Alvi on Saturday said a prosperous Pakistan was emerging in the global arena and urged overseas Pakistanis to benefit from the secure investment policies of the country.
Addressing an event related to the Roshan Apna Ghar initiative for expatriates, the president said Pakistan, as the fifth most populated country of the world, had set its targets high to attain development in various fields.
Not only resources but the vision and right policies greatly contributed to the development of a nation, he said and expressed optimism about Pakistan.
President Alvi said that he was hopeful that the country would make strides in the world through its progressive policies.
The Pakistani nation has emerged as a resilient nation after overcoming big challenges, such as terrorism and recently the coronavirus pandemic, he added.
Adviser to the Prime Minister on Commerce Abdul Razak Dawood said that Pakistan’s economy was on the right track with encouraging economic indicators.
The exports and agriculture sectors of the country were witnessing high growth, he said and expressed the confidence that due to the effective policies of the government, the sustainable development of Pakistan would continue for the benefit of its people.
State Bank of Pakistan Governor Dr Reza Baqir said that in line with the vision of Prime Minister Imran Khan, the central bank was facilitating the overseas Pakistanis with incentives such as Roshan Digital Accounts, which allows the capital to be repatriated.
The banks were competing to facilitate the overseas Pakistanis on the Roshan Apna Ghar initiative and ensure their easy investment in the country, he added.
Pakistan was one of the few countries in the world, which has witnessed immense growth even during the challenging times of the Covid-19 pandemic, Baqir said.
