ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has said that the country’s economy had improved as compared to last year with GDP growth raised from 2.9 to 5.1 per cent.

“We want to take GDP rate to 7 percent in next four years,” the Prime Minister said. The Prime Minister said the GSP plus would benefit many sectors including textiles and leather industry.

He said that the decision of Asian Development Bank to invest in Jamshoro coal power plant will pave the way for investment in Gadani coal power project. With these projects, Pakistan would be able to achieve its energy targets within three to four years, he added.
