LAHORE Ambassador of Bosnia Herzegovina in Pakistan Armin Limo called on Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif here on Wednesday, and discussed matters of mutual interest as well cooperation in various sectors. MPA Syed Zaeem Qadri and Chairman Planning and Development Board Javaid Aslam were also present on the occasion. While talking to the Ambassador, the CM said Pakistan and Bosnia Herzegovina had close friendly ties and the help extended by Pakistan in the Bosnian war was its moral responsibility. However, he said, the economic relations between Pakistan and Bosnia Herzegovina do not reflect their close fraternal ties and there is a need to cement trade and economic relations between the two countries. He further said there were vast opportunities of investment in the Punjab, and Bosnia and Punjab could launch joint ventures in various sectors, including dairy farming. Meanwhile, Shahbaz Sharif has said his governments all policies are aimed at elimination of poverty, ignorance and unemployment from the province and bringing marginalised segments of the society into national mainstream. Despite the worst-ever floods, shortage of funds has not been allowed to become a hurdle in the projects of provision of basic amenities to the masses and uplift schemes are being executed on priority basis in less developed areas, he added, while asking PML-N workers to serve the people with commitment. While talking to party workers during a meeting here on Wednesday, Shahbaz Sharif said the Punjab government had adopted a comprehensive policy for the progress of the people and raising their living standard. Maximum funds are being spent on the progress and prosperity of the people as only masses have the right over national resources, he mentioned, adding that his government had promoted the culture of good governance.
