Reducing trade deficit govt’s priority: PM’s commerce adviser

ISLAMABAD: Adviser to Prime Minister on Commerce, Textile and Investment Abdul Razak Dawood on Tuesday said reducing trade deficit remains the current government’s topmost priority. Addressing an international cement conference in Lahore, Dawood said the government is working hard to promote export culture in the country to reverse the process of de-industrialisation. He said the government remains committed to facilitating the business community, and that everyone needs to play a role in the national and economic development of the country. “No nation can progress unless it pursues an export-driven strategy,” the adviser added. He informed that a number of decisions were taken in Monday’s meeting of the Economic Coordination Committee to facilitate zero-rated industries.
