    The prime minister said that development of agriculture and other sectors necessary to steer out the country from the swamp of loan.

    He said that former rulers had been sheltering money laundering and added that the current government had taken adequate measure to restore industry and the country’s economy.

    The meeting decided to constitute a committee headed by the interior minister to curb smuggling on Pak-Iran border and systematize Pak-Afghan transit trade.

    The committee comprised officials of commerce division, FBR, finance division and representatives of the provinces. The committee was given a task to review the prevailing laws and present its suggestions within a month.

    Smuggling of Chinese goods have helped to decimate local industry & manufacturing. Such steps should help revive local industry.

    Any such effort will not bear results unless you take action against customs officers and FC personnels involved in smuggling.

    Second measure to be taken is completion of fencing along Pak-Afghan and Pak-Iran borders as soon as possible. The items Pakistan exports to Afghanistan are smuggled back and sell at lower prices hurting country's economy. In addition, a huge chunk of Chinese goods smuggle in Pakistan is through Pak-Afghan border. Moreover, smuggling of Iranian oil and petroleum products inside Pakistani terrority is a well known phenomenon. The issue should be dealt with accordingly.
