Army to assist govt in curbing illegal activities hampering economic growth: ISPR

  • Military’s top brass reiterates to continue support of ongoing efforts in uplifting socioeconomic growth under umbrella of SIFC
Published September 7, 2023

Pakistan Army’s top brass on Thursday resolved to assist the government “wholeheartedly” in curbing all illegal activities which hamper economic stability, growth, and investors’ confidence, a press release from its media wing Inter Services Public Relations Pakistan (ISPR) stated.

The military’s top brass also reiterated to continue full support of ongoing efforts in uplifting the socioeconomic growth under the umbrella of Special Investment Facilitation Council (SIFC).

The resolve was expressed in the 259th Corps Commanders’ Conference (CCC) held at the General Headquarters (GHQ), headed by General Syed Asim Munir, NI (M), Chief of Army Staff (COAS).

Defence Day of Pakistan: remembering the sacrifices

The forum paid rich tribute to the supreme sacrifices of Shuhadas, including officers and men of the armed forces, law enforcement agencies and citizens who laid their lives for the safety, security, and territorial integrity of the country.

Fateha was offered for the martyrs and it was reiterated that the State of Pakistan and armed forces will continue to hold the Shuhadas and their families in highest esteem, ever honoring them with utmost respect and dignity.

“Commemoration of Defence and Martyrs Day on 6 September across the country by all segments of the society was appreciated for which the Armed Forces of Pakistan remain ever thankful to our proud nation,” ISPR said.

The participants reiterated Pakistan Army’s resolve to defend the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Pakistan against all kinds of direct and indirect threats.

“Forum re-affirmed that inimical propagandists’ desperate attempts to cause wedge between the state institutions and public are indicative of their mounting desperation and will only result into more humiliation of such elements, InshaAllah.”

The participants were briefed on prevalent geo-strategic environment, challenges to national security and own strategy in response to evolving threat.

COAS says attempt to dent people’s trust in army thwarted

The forum resolved that all terrorists, their facilitators and abettors, working on the behest of hostile forces to destabilise Pakistan will be dealt with full might of the state.

“The need for speedy development of economic potential of Newly Merged Districts (NMDs) and Border Districts of Balochistan for sustainable peace and growth was also emphasised,” it said.

COAS stressed on maintaining high standards of professionalism and motivation during operations and achieving excellence during training of the formations.

He commended the commanders for their constant focus on the wellbeing of their soldiers and maintenance of morale which constituted the foundation of Army’s operational readiness.

"The military’s top brass also reiterated to continue full support of ongoing efforts in uplifting the socioeconomic growth under the umbrella of Special Investment Facilitation Council (SIFC)." What is there to support as nothing has been done or activated under SIFC, empty rhetoric; when its all said and done, more is said than done. Asim Munir get back to securing the country borders and safety of people and stop terrorizing them; you have no idea what the Political Economy and FDI is, and clueless about Macro restructuring of the economy to enhance exports (the bottom line and base of future progress)
