On Monday, Prime Minister Imran Khan announced the setting up of Pakistan’s first green Eurobond by the Water and Power Development Authority (Wapda) at a ceremony in Islamabad.
The prime minister attended the ceremony as chief guest and began his address by congratulating the authority on the achievement. He also expressed satisfaction at the progress on Mohmand and Bhasha dams.
“Unfortunately, one of Pakistan’s biggest weaknesses is the implementation of projects. In my government I am also seeing that some things lag behind when it comes to implementation.”
PM Imran lamented the fact that Pakistan’s potential had not been utilized. “When Shaukat Tarin and I were growing up in Pakistan, the country had a different status in the world. Our economy at one point was at the fourth spot in all of Asia.”
