Finance Minister Asad Umar has expressed the resolve that the government will make every decision in the best interest of the people of Pakistan to ensure peace and development.

He said forty-eight million dollars foreign portfolio investment came to Pakistan during the last two months.
Asad Umar said confidence of foreign investors has increased due to prudent economic policies of government which will revamp economic outlook of the country.
Earlier today, Prime Minister Imran Khan presided over a parliamentary meeting in Islamabad to devise an effective plan ahead of presenting the proposed amendments in the NA as the opposition leaders are anticipated to stage a strong protest against the government on certain matters.
