GENEVA: Prime Min­is­ter Muham­mad Nawaz Sharif's visit to rep­re­sent Pak­istan at World Eco­nomic Fo­rum got a very pos­i­tive re­sponse. This was stated by Pak­istan's Per­ma­nent Rep­re­sen­ta­tive to the United Na­tions in Geneva Tehmina Jan­jua while com­ment­ing on the prime min­is­ter's visit to Switzer­land to at­tend the World Eco­nomic Fo­rum meet­ing. She said the in­ter­na­tional busi­ness com­mu­nity en­dorsed the in­cum­bent govern­ment's poli­cies to turn around the na­tional econ­omy.

She said lead­ing in­vestors and busi­ness lead­ers con­veyed their con­fi­dence in the poli­cies of the govern­ment. Th­ese poli­cies have brought the coun­try out of se­ri­ous eco­nomic dif­fi­cul­ties. On Jan­uary 22 at­tend­ing World Eco­nomic Fo­rum in Davos, Prime Min­is­ter Nawaz Sharif said Pak­istan to­day is fast head­ing to­wards a promis­ing and pros­per­ous fu­ture. Giv­ing a talk on "Re­gions in Trans­for­ma­tion - South Asia", The Prime Min­is­ter said govern­ment has suc­cess­fully ad­dressed the chal­lenges of ter­ror­ism, en­ergy short­ages and eco­nomic re­vival. He said Pak­istan has paid heavy price in the fight against ter­ror­ism in term of loss of life and prop­erty. He said that due to suc­cess­ful Op­er­a­tion Zarb-e-Azb, the ter­ror­ists are now on the run and are strik­ing soft tar­gets. Nawaz Sharif said the coun­try's GDP growth rate was 3 per­cent, now it was 4.2 per­cent and hope­fully it would cross 5 per cent rate. The Prime Min­is­ter ap­prised the en­trepreneurs about the busi­ness and in­vest­ment friendly poli­cies of the govern­ment.
