Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif says the government is taking required steps to stabilize economy and get the country out of problems.

The Prime Minister said purpose of his meeting with traders and business community was to know about their problems and resolve them.

Talking about load-shedding in the country, Shehbaz Sharif stressed the need to focus on projects of alternate energy to deal with electricity shortage. He said we have ample resources of solar and wind that can resolve our electricity issues.

The Prime Minister said CPEC projects were initiated to solve load-shedding issue but these projects remained in limbo due to non-seriousness of the previous government.

Referring to temporary ban on import of luxury goods, he said it is aimed to save dollars and give some boost to local industries.

Prime Minister Shahbaz Sharif emphasized to focus on establishing industrial zones to give boost to industrial sector.

He said we have also great potential in the IT and agriculture sectors and need to devise plans to use this potential to the maximum.
