Last week, a delegation led by businessmen and brokers held a meeting with Adviser to Prime Minister on Finance Dr Abdul Hafeez Sheikh and discussed the overall macro-economic situation and its impact on capital markets in the country.
Considering the present depressed market sentiment, the delegation suggested various measures for strengthening the capital markets.
It was suggested that the proposed draft of Listed Companies (Buy Back of Shares) Regulations, 2019, be approved on priority basis and the limit of 10 per cent on treasury shares should be enhanced.
