LAHORE: Punjab Chief Minister Maryam Nawaz on Saturday, on the success of talks between a Pakistani delegation and the UAE authorities, welcomed the statement of investment of $10 billion by the UAE.

She added: “The pledge of $10 billion investment is an undeniable proof of external confidence in the PMLN government. Positive economic indicators augur well for a better economic future of Pakistan. Pakistan’s stock market is setting new records day by day. This positive trend in PSX 100 index is welcome. The government is focused on giving maximum relief to people by bringing down inflation. Inflation will decrease and the Pakistani currency will stabilize. The price of food items including bread will further decrease. The PMLN government enjoys trust of businessmen, industrialists and investors. The efforts of Shehbaz government for foreign direct investment in Pakistan are commendable.” 

The chief minister hoped Pakistan will regain its lost position under the PMLN government. Expressing grief over the loss of human lives due to lightning and falling walls of houses in rain, she expressed heartfelt sympathies with the bereaved families. She directed the administration to carry out effective relief operations in affected areas and asked the PDMA to make advance preparations in view of more possible rain.
