FM Qureshi said in the post, “no nation can prosper under the burden of debt. The only way out is by increasing our tax base and documenting the economy.”

The foreign minister urged every Pakistani to play their part, pay taxes and encourage others to do the same.

The government of Prime Minister Imran Khan has made raising the country’s tax base a top priority. “People think their tax won’t be spent on them. They believe it’ll be stolen or won’t be spent on them. However, I promise it would definitely be spent on them,” said the PM.
