Prime Minister Imran Khan stated Monday that Pakistan’s greatest need was to increase its wealth. He spoke at a groundbreaking ceremony for an international five-star hotel in Nathia Gali.
Premier said that the government was struggling with the establishment of rule of law in the country, which would attract foreign investment and encourage tourism.
“We are fighting to reform the system, and establish rule of Law. Without rule of law, no country can thrive. The prime minister stated that many countries with sufficient resources are in poverty because there is no rule of law.
He said, “Our war is not to fix the system.”
The ceremony was attended by federal ministers Shibli Faraz and Azam Swati, Ali Haider Zaidi and State Minister Farrukh Habib. Shahryar Afridi, the Chairperson of Parliamentary Committee on Kashmir, as well as provincial ministers, also attended.
According to reports, the hotel will be Khyber Paktunkhwa’s first international five-star hotel.
Prime Minister, who unveiled the plaque earlier and also planted a sapling in his government’s 10 billion Tree Tsunami program, stated that wealth creation was the nation’s urgent need. It would eventually generate jobs, increase tax collection, and help with the repayment of foreign debts.
He stated that in order to attract foreign investment, it was important to provide incentives and protect them from corruption.
The premier encouraged Pakistanis living abroad to invest in Pakistan and assured them that any obstacle will be overcome.
He pointed out that Pakistanis living abroad are our greatest asset and regretted that this potential was not fully tapped.
PM Imran Khan stated that Pakistanis have skills and money, and that the currency will grow if they invest in the country.
