President Dr Arif Alvi has underscored the need for all stakeholders to make collective efforts to address the chronic social and economic issues in the country, which are impacting the national economy.
He was speaking at the Achievement Recognition Ceremony 2023 at the President House where the Lahore Chamber of Commerce and Industry (LCCI) recognised the services of top 12 companies. The president called on the private sector including industrialists and traders to come forward and share responsibility by uplifting the plight of the downtrodden strata of society, besides lending a helping hand to resolve the issue of about 28 million out-of-school children.
“Vulnerable people should be provided with education and health facilities so that they could get equal opportunities as such models are being followed across the globe,” he stressed.
