FAISALABAD, APR 21 (DNA) – Engineer Hafiz Ihtasham Javed President Faisalabad Chamber of Commerce & Industry (FCCI) has welcomed the appointment of Mr. Shaukat Tarin as new finance minister and hoped that he would not only protect the national interest but also revive the economy on a positive and sustainable basis.

He further said that being a sovereign nation we must depend upon our own financial resources instead of depending on foreign loans. He also lauded the efforts of Mr. Hammad Azhar for the revival of the national economy and hoped that now being energy minister, he will resolve this most ticklish issue with prudence.
