Addressing the foundation-laying ceremony of the University of Health Sciences (UHS) Kala Shah Kaku (KSK) campus on Saturday, he said Pakistan, unfortunately, was ruled by dictators for 35 years in the past and the unelected government spent the funds from the social sector in the name of security.

The minister said the 813 million rupees grant would be provided in phases under the SARF project of the HEC.

The Planning and Development Minister said the country could not progress in the past due to ebb and flow in the political history of the country, adding that Japan and Malaysia were far behind Pakistan economically, became developed due to political stability.

Prof Ahsan Iqbal said economy of a nation was also dependent on the health of the individuals, adding that health sector was ignored in the past and we will have to follow the golden principle of ‘the more healthy a nation, the more developed a nation’.

The minister stressed the need for strengthening institutions and continuity of policies, adding that only then the future will be bright and the country will achieve unprecedented progress.
He said the government, under the dynamic leadership of Prime Minister Muhammad Nawaz Sharif, had overcome load-shedding to a great extent, adding that country faced 18-20 hours load-shedding in the year 2013.

He said the country today had won confidence of the foreign investors and international economic institutions for its pragmatic policies and Pakistan was declared a fast developing economy. He said the CPEC had provided us a great opportunity take off as a growing economy, claiming our GDP stands at 5 mark today and it could touch 7-8 mark in the next few years through democratic stability.

He said 10,000 individuals would get PhDs from the best US universities under the US-Pakistan Knowledge Corridor as well in the next 10 years, adding that the budget of the Higher Education Commission (HEC) has been increased from 100 billion rupees to 215 billion rupees.
