ISLAMABAD: Federal Minister for Finance Ishaq Dar on Tuesday has yet made another tall claim by stating that load-shedding would come to an end till March 2018.
He was addressing to a seminar over national economy, in Islamabad.
During his speech, Ishaq Dar said that the incumbent Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) government is currently working on several short and long term power projects including construction of dams so that the power production in the country can be enhanced.
Criticizing baseless allegations of opposition parties, the minister suggested to separate politics from economy and termed Pakistan’s economic expansion crucial for the development.
While commenting about China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC), Dar told that CPEC is not just a name of a road or railway system but a mega project as it would not only benefit Pakistan but other countries of the region as well. He added that trade figures have been raised extensively which would result in benefiting the economy.
CPEC is an important project to link ways between countries, said PML-N leader.
Dar stated that expanded economy has caused massive increase in foreign exchange whereas the federation is also focusing on returning debt to International Monetary Fund (IMF).
