QUETTA: Balochistan Governor Syed Zahoor Ahmed Agha has said that the business community is the backbone of the country’s economy and it is a responsibility of the government to provide security and other necessary facilities to them for boosting business and trade activities in the province.

Speaking at a seminar organi­sed by a traders’ organi­sation in Pishin on Sunday, the governor said that finding an early and timely solution to the problems was among top priorities of the government.

Mr Agha said that owing to closure of business centres and border trade due to the global epidemic, traders and businessmen faced various difficulties which also badly affected the country’s economy.

However, he said, the present government had made conscious efforts to revive the country’s economy and boost trade and business activities, which would save the country from economic catastrophe.

The governor said that despite difficult conditions of a global epidemic like Covid-19, the country’s traders continued to run their businesses and work day and night to increase the country’s exports.
