The business leaders welcomed the gesture of both the political parties to set aside political differences in the best interests of Pakistan. They said that country is facing multiple challenges and all political forces should be on one page to counter the major issues such as terrorism, economic crisis, energy shortage and inflation. In this respect, MQM and PML(N) had taken a good initiative to cooperate, which would hopefully set a good example for other political parties also.

The FPCCI leadership, while welcoming the consensus of both the political parties on Mr. Mamnoon Hussain as a presidential candidate, said that Mr. Hussain is an honest, seasoned businessman and enjoys good repute in the business circles.

They said that both the Prime Minister and the presidential candidate Mr. Mamnoon Hussain are from the business community, which would help ensure that the Government would take action to resolve the real problems faced by the country’s businessmen. Furthermore, they hoped that under the new able leadership of the country, Pakistan’s economic problems would be resolved and the confidence of local and foreign investors would be restored.
