Prime Minister Imran Khan has announced full support to the Sialkot industry and maximum facilitation for boosting exports through ease of doing business.
He said the government was removing successfully all the hurdles in the way of promotion of national exports through ease of doing business.
Speaking at the launching ceremony of private airline AirSial, he said the government was fully aware of the problems being faced by the business community and was making all-out efforts for their solution. The premier called Sialkot’s business community the “most vibrant” one in the country.

It is the only way to stop the virus,” the PM said.
