Punjab Governor Balig-ur-Rehman says business community crucial for socio-economic advancement.
LAHORE: (UrduPoint/Pakistan Point News-Nov 29th, 2022) Governor of Punjab Muhammad Muhammad Baligh-ur-Rehman Tuesday said the business community is essential to the nation's socioeconomic progress and should be applauded by the government, bureaucracy, general public, and other facets of society for contributing to the country's economy.
He was talking to the delegation of Lahore Chamber of Commerce and Industry, led by its President Kashif Anwar. Both LCCI Senior Vice President Chaudhry Zafar Mahmood and Vice President Adnan Khalid Butt also spoke on the occasion.
The Governor stated that the business community contributes in a variety of ways, the most crucial of which is by creating employment, which lowers poverty and, in turn, lowers crime and unrest rates and contributes to the social fabric of society by promoting education, health, and development.
The Governor said that the Governors' House comes in the constituency of the Lahore Chamber of Commerce and Industry and said, "We welcome Lahore Chamber of Commerce and Industry again and again as the neighbours have more rights."
The Governors' House, according to him, will assist the Lahore Chamber of Commerce and Industry whenever necessary.
LCCI office-bearers also added that increasing exports is one of the key factors influencing growth. “Government can achieve overall growth through growing exports as well as the amount of labour and capital they employ” they added.
