President Pakistan Businessmen and Intellectuals Forum (PBIF), President AKIA, Secretary General of the Businessmen Panel of FPCCI and former provincial minister Mian Zahid Hussain on Monday said the business community of Pakistan supports the nomination of Shahbaz Sharif as the Prime Minister of Pakistan.
Nomination of Shahid Khaqan Abbasi as interim prime minister is also a good move and we hope that he will be elected unopposed, he said.
Mian Zahid Hussain said that Shahbaz Sharif will continue to push the developmental agenda of the former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and try his best to improve the economy.
He said that the process of electing new prime minister should be completed as soon as possible so that the uncertainty ends without any further loss.
The business leader said that following the Supreme Court’s verdict, the PML-N has demonstrated exceptional restraint and political maturity which has sent a very positive message.
Business community hopes that all the parties including the ruling party will keep the national interests supreme in the future.
Mian Zahid Hussain said that Nawaz Sharif took the country out of the mess, took Pak-China ties to new heights, and initiated CPEC which is to transform Pakistan into an Asian tiger.
CPEC has put Pakistan on the world’s economic map while it has resulted in sleepless nights for the enemies of Pakistan, he added.
The former PM also started importing LNG resulting in economic activity, revenue and reduced unemployment while dozens of power projects reduced load shedding substantially.
Dozens of international institutions lauded economic policies of Nawaz administration, terrorism was contained while Karachi was made a peaceful city, he said.
