ISLAMABAD: Finance Minister Senator Abdul Hafeez Sheikh has said the timely delivery of dues from global allies in connection with war against terrorism will surely minimize Pakistan’s economic deficiencies besides uplifting economic condition here, Geo news reported.
This he told US especial envoy to Pakistan and Afghanistan, Richard Holbrooke, while holding a meeting with him here on Sunday.
Finance Minister was of the view that Pakistan was looking forward an active participation from US in sectors like energy and agriculture in Pakistan.
Minister, on the occasion, also briefed Holbrooke on progress of Benazir Income Support Programe (BISP).
Holbrooke said US sees Pakistan’s role in uprooting militancy as highly-commendable, urging on the need to boost cooperation of private sectors from two sides.
“Exhibition of Pakistan’s textile commodities in New York was a good step forward”, Holbrooke maintained.
