ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi would lead Pakistan’s delegation at the World Economic Forum at Davos in Switzerland.

The theme of the four-day event, beginning on Tuesday, is Creating a Shared Future in a Fractured World, an official statement said on Monday.

Marriyum said the Pakistani delegation would highlight achievements made by Pakistan during the last four and a half years in the realm of economy, good governance, security, contribution and role of Pakistan in the war against terror and strengthening of democracy.

She said there was supremacy of the Constitution and rule of law in the country and added that institutions are fully empowered.

She said civil society in Pakistan is active, freedom of expression is protected by the Constitution, media has unprecedented freedom, people are taking full advantage of modern technology — including social media and the country is recognised as an emerging economy.

    The delegation will also deliver a speech on Accountability System in Pakistan, where law is also applied on the most powerful persons, and now a days, ex PM is going through this process and we are very hopeful and confident that Sharif family will be punished and all their assets, wealth and properties in Pakistan and abroad will be confiscated.Recommend
