Tareen said that LCs were not being opened and companies were not getting money. He said that during their tenure they had given relief to the common man. PTI government controlled the prices of potatoes, tomatoes and onions.

Shaukat Tareen also said that to bring the country out of the economic crisis foreign exchange reserves needed to be increased. He said that if the income of the people will increase they will bear inflation.

He said that the saving rate was very low from 12 to 13 percent while the Federal Bureau of Revenue (FBR) and government resources also have to be increased. He said that unless the import and export will be balanced there will be a shortage of dollars in the country.
