In joint session address, President Alvi presents PTI’s 3-year report card

ISLAMABAD: President Dr Arif Alvi on Monday highlighted the PTI-led government’s three-year report card, with the Opposition boycotting the session in protest.

The president, at the outset of his speech during the joint session of the parliament, spoke about the economy. “Despite coronavirus, Pakistan’s economy performed better as compared to other countries due to the government’s prudent policies.”

The Opposition began thumping benches and started a ruckus in the Parliament, at which the president said: “You can make all the noise you want, but you have to accept the reality — that the country is moving forward.”

The president said the country’s growth rate reached 3.94% during 2020-21, exports increased from $23.7 billion to $25.3 billion, and remittances reached a record $19.4 billion — which was $6 billion more as compared to the last year.

President Alvi said the Pakistan Stock Exchange (PSX) performed in an excellent manner, “broke all previous records”, and became the fourth-best stock market globally.
