"The first ever Com­merce & Trade Strat­egy of Sindh de­vel­oped af­ter the 18thCon­sti­tu­tional Amend­ment shall help gen­er­ate em­ploy­ment in com­mer­cial do­mains and will pro­vide a strong foun­da­tion for ef­fec­tively re­duc­ing poverty, de­vel­op­ing mar­ket place out­look, at­tract­ing in­vest­ments and boost­ing growth in line with the vi­sion 2020". This was stated by If­fat Malik, Ad­di­tional Sec­re­tary, In­dus­tries and Com­merce Depart­ment, Govern­ment of Sindh, while ad­dress­ing a work­shop for stake­hold­ers con­sul­ta­tion on the pro­vin­cial strat­egy to pro­mote Com­merce & Trade in the Prov­ince of Sindh.

The Pro­vin­cial Sec­re­tary urged upon the stake­hold­ers to come for­ward with their in­put and sug­ges­tions for strength­en­ing the Pro­vin­cial Govern­ment in de­vel­op­ing a ro­bust strat­egy on com­mer­cial gov­er­nance with fo­cus on skill and en­tre­pre­neur­ial de­vel­op­ment.

Aasim Ti­wana, Di­rec­tor Pol­icy, Min­istry of Com­merce, Govern­ment of Pak­istan, on the oc­ca­sion, high­lighted the im­por­tance of the pro­vin­cial strat­egy based on con­tin­u­ous in­crease in com­mer­cial ac­tiv­ity in all sec­tors of in­dus­try, agri­cul­ture, min­ing, ser­vices, and small and medium en­ter­prises, par­tic­u­larly at a time when the eco­nomic sur­vey, world­wide govern­ment in­di­ca­tors, world com­pet­i­tive­ness in­dex and in­ter­na­tional do­ing busi­ness sur­veys were clearly in­di­cat­ing to a de­cline in so­cio-eco­nomic con­di­tions of Pak­istan.

Ti­wana re­ferred to the eco­nomic and so­cial in­di­ca­tors and in­ter­na­tional rank­ings to em­pha­size that the eco­nomic and com­mer­cial po­ten­tial of Sindh can be in­ten­sively ex­ploited by cap­i­tal­iz­ing on ports, na­tion-wide lo­gis­tics, link­ages on trade route, tra­di­tional items and hand­i­crafts and im­prove­ment in sec­tor of agri­cul­ture, live­stock, min­ing and small in­dus­tries.
