ISLAMABAD:

Pakistan attaches special importance to bilateral relations with the United Kingdom and economic and business linkages between the two countries should be strengthened further, said Federal Minister for Finance and Revenue Shaukat Tarin. Talking to British High Commissioner to Pakistan Christian Turner at the Finance Division, he appreciated the support extended by the British government and its people to Pakistan during the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. He apprised the high commissioner of the Ehsaas Emergency Cash programme and the initiative of direct cash transfers to the under-privileged women. “Ehsaas programme has played a significant role in mitigating the economic hardships of the marginalised groups of society amid Covid-19,” he said.
