PM Imran Khan shares good news on economic front in coming days

ISLAMABAD - Prime Minister Imran Khan performed the groundbreaking of Naya Pakistan Housing Scheme in Renala Khurd near Okara on Saturday.

Addressing the gathering there, the Prime Minister said that despite difficult economic situation, the present government has embarked upon the project to construct five million houses in its five years tenure.

He said the private sector will invest in this mega project while the government will play the role of facilitator. He said several foreign companies are evincing great interest for investment in the housing sector.

He said the scope of the housing project will be spread to the whole country. He was confident that the project will gather pace with each passing year as Naya Pakistan Housing Authority has been established and all the hurdles in the way have been removed with amendments in the rules and regulations of State Bank of Pakistan. He said it is his dream to provide house to each homeless person.

The Prime Minister said we are executing difficult projects which the previous governments failed to undertake. He said the housing project will enable the youth to establish construction companies. This mega project will uplift forty industries allied to the construction which will generate economic activity and job opportunities for the youth.

Imran Khan said the government is also bringing an excellent program for "Katchi Abadies'. He said these slums will be converted into flats where people will have access to basic amenities including water, electricity and sewerage.
