ISLAMABAD: Care­taker Prime Minister Anwaarul Haq Kakar on Monday directed the authorities concerned to accelerate the realisation of identified projects by capitalising the enabling environment already achieved through the Special Investment Facili­tation Council (SIFC).

Chairing the 4th Apex Committee meeting of the SIFC, the premier appreciated the efficient functioning of SIFC through a collaborative “Whole of Government Approach” for achieving horizontal and vertical synergy.

The meeting was attended by Chief of Army Staff, entire federal cabinet, chief ministers, provincial ministers and high-level government officials.

The meeting was given a wholesome review of SIFC initiatives encompassing progress in key areas and benchmarks achieved thus far in a short span of time.
