The concern shared by the members on high inflation, unemployment, and low growth, Prime Minister Imran Khan on Thursday asked the newly created Economic Advisory Council EAC to propose measures for relief to the people rather than the imposition of more taxes.
Finance Minister Shaukat Tarin chaired the first session of the EAC meeting. The prime minister presided over the second session through videolink.
“The most important expectation I have from you (EAC) is to suggest out-of-box solutions as to how to reduce prices,” an official quoted the prime minister as saying.
He assured the EAC members that their recommendations would be actively pushed through for implementation.
