Ch Sarwar said that Pakistan was faced with numerous challenges on economic front, but he was sure that the measures taken by economic team of government under the leadership of Prime Imran Khan will pull the country out of economic crisis by year 2020.

“Pakistan will advance successfully in the economic field that will ensure development, prosperity and create employment opportunities. Instead of talking on facts, the opposition is criticizing mindlessly the government steps just for political mileage however it will not succeed in its mission”, he observed.
