September 15, 2021

Finance Minister Shaukat Tarin says Pakistan's economy is coming out of consolidation phase and is presently in a state of growth.

Talking to a German business delegation accompanied with German Ambassador to Pakistan Bernhard Schlagheck in Islamabad on Wednesday, he said that Pakistan's investment policy envisages attracting further foreign direct investment and providing full support and facilitation to the foreign investors.

The Finance Minister stressed upon the German investors and businessmen to further strengthen business and economic linkages between the two countries.

He said government is all set to launch "Agricultural Transformation Plan" to boost agricultural productivity. He said that micro credit will be extended to the farmers at grass root level to procure agricultural inputs and farm machinery.

Shaukat Tarin said loans will be disbursed to pave way for enabling infrastructure like construction of agri malls, storage facilities and commodity warehouses in order to ensure due share to farmers and to stabilize prices of the items of daily use.
