KARACHI: President of Korangi Association, Trade and Industry (KATI) and Patron-in-Chief of Pakistan Business Group, Faraz-ur-Rehman, while addressing a dinner which he hosted in the honour of businessmen, industrialists and bureaucrats, said that by training the youth in modern technology, IT exports can be increased and can provide economic stability.
MQM leader Farooq Sattar, PBG President Waheed Panjwani, General Secretary Ali Arsh Khan, Vice President Nasir Sheikh, committee members Fawad Sheikh, and other businessmen and industrialists were also present on this occasion. A cake-cutting ceremony was also held on the birth dates of Farooq Sattar and Waheed Panjwani.
On this occasion, President KATI said that the political tension needs to end so that the economy can be saved from destruction, as the value of the dollar and the interest rate are increasing, and on the other hand, politicians are being seen fighting for their self-interests.
Faraz-ur-Rehman added in his address that he is determined to help the government by presenting suggestions from the platform of Pakistan Business Group.
President KATI said that it is imperative to increase exports on a priority basis so that foreign exchange reserves also increase along with the increase in income. In the present situation, IT export can be increased immediately, for which the government should pay immediate attention and take measures on an emergency basis to train the youth.
If all the departments equip the youth with modern technology, the economy can be supported quickly by IT exports.
Faraz-ur-Rehman said that Pakistan is rich in countless resources and there is no doubt that if the government formulates the right strategy, Pakistan can come out of any crisis. He hoped that the politicians would forget their differences, give priority to Pakistan and solve problems unitedly to bring the country out of an economic crisis.
