Last year, the federal cabinet reviewed performance of each ministry with a view to enhancing their performance and improving quality of life of the people.

It directed that all the departments concerned will work in tandem to ensure optimum output. The ministers were impressed by the performance of Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi, State Minister Murad Saeed and Prime Minister’s Special Assistance Zulfi Bukhari.

During the meeting, the prime minister gave 10 minutes time to each of the ministers for briefing. Afterwards, a five minutes question-and-answer session was held with each minister. The discussion focused on service delivery, austerity measures and future plans.
