Finance Minister Ishaq Dar Wednesday said the government is making efforts to revive the economy.
Today, Ishaq Dar said we have recently started operations to check the smuggling of foreign cash and other goods at the second Pakistan Prosperity Forum in Islamabad. The minister declared his support for the track and trace programme of the FBR.
Terming the tax collection history a big issue, Ishaq Dar said Pakistan facing problems due to a lack of stability in the economic policies.
To increase the country’s exports, measures are being done. There is no other option besides raising taxes to match the GDP rate.
According to the Finance Minister, our customs service recently arrested a person at the Chaman border who was attempting to smuggle $100,000 across the border.
Strongly criticizing the policies of the previous government, Ishaq Dar said there was an unbearable increase in the country’s debt during its tenure.
He again reiterated his resolve for the charter of the economy to steer the country out of the present crisis.
