The premier took to Twitter to announce that the government's efforts to bring down inflation were bearing fruit. "More good news on the economic front. Our efforts to reduce inflation are now showing results. Consumer price index & core inflation are both now lower than when our government was formed," he said.

Earlier this month, the prime minister had appreciated Pakistani exporters for their role in increasing the country's exports.

"Well done & keep up this trend. A major pillar of our govt's economic policy is export enhancement & we will provide full support to promote export culture," he had tweeted.
