Committee formed on the prime minister’s directives earlier this month to suggest economic reforms, met for the first meeting at the Governor House on Monday.

Presided over by Sindh Governor Mohammad Zubair, the members of the committee decided to submit their recommendations by March 31.

The committee was formed after Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif met with the local business community on March 14.

The committee is to recommend reforms in taxation and the capital market, besides also suggesting changes in urban infrastructure development and creating job opportunities in the country.

Three sub-committees were constituted to work on the different sectors, while the recommendations were decided to be finalised by March 31.

Governor Zubair while addressing the meeting said the business community’s involvement in further improving country’s economy was of paramount importance, and for this the prime minister formed a committee to seek their suggestions.

He said the proposals finalised by the committee would further strengthen the economy as businessmen and industrialists are aware of even the basic problems.

The committee members thanked the PM for reposing trust in them and pledged to work with utmost devotion to make the country’s economy more stable and stronger.
