The Federation of Pakistan Chamber of Commerce and Industry’s United Business Group Chairman Shahzad Ali Malik called on Pakistan Muslim League(N) Quaid and former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif at his London residence on Tuesday.
Shahzad Ali Malik, accompanied by his son Momin Ali Malik, member Executive Committee of Lahore Chamber of Commerce and Industry inquired about Sharif’s health and discussed with him the performance of the coalition government.
Sharif appreciated the suggestion of Shahzad Malik to improve the performance of the government. Former federal finance minister Senator Ishaq Dar was also present on the occasion.
Nawaz Sharif told Shahzad Ali Malik that the steps to increase the prices of petroleum products and power and gas were very troubling as there was no other option to save the country from default. He recalled that his previous regime of 2013-2017 was the most relief-filled time for the people of Pakistan when the inflation was at its lowest.
Both Shahzad Ali Malik and Nawaz Sharif praised Ishaq Dar for his economic wisdom and Shahzad Ali Malik said Dar should return to the country to steer the country from the crumbling economy.
Shahzad Ali Malik suggested to the former prime minister to plan his return to Pakistan after his recovery and play a role in politics and the progress of country.

About his return, Nawaz Sharif said his treatment was going on and once he recovered and doctors allowed him, he would take a flight to Pakistan forthwith.
Nawaz Sharif told Momin Ali Malik that he always attached great importance to young educated entrepreneurs, especially women, to help strengthen the national economy besides boosting exports.
