“Today you can see that the weight yield is at a record high as per our assessments,”.
“I’m personally looking at it and I’ll will prove to you by bringing about a major revolution in agriculture,” said the PM adding that

During his address, he also paid homage to the Holy Prophet Peace Be Upon Him, saying that the principles on which the State of Medinah was established were shining example for governments across the globe even today.
“The Holy Quran has ordered us to follow his (Holy Prophet Peace Be Upon Him) path, because it is a success story,” said Imran Khan.

“It will lead to a positive effect on other industries if Pakistan’s housing sector booms,” the PM said, adding that there were 30 sectors which were linked to the housing sector. He stated that Pakistan's economy would benefit once the houses were constructed as people would then avail services from other sectors once the construction is completed.
Speaking about the tourism sector, he said it was unfortunate no one had previously given thought to it despite its massive potential.
“Pakistan's tourism sector alone has the potential to earn even more for the country than its exports,” he added.
