ISLAMABAD: Advisor to Prime Minister on Finance and Revenue Hafeez Shaikh Monday said that inflation rate in the country would start receding soon which would gradually come down to comfortable level.
The advisor said the federal government had taken a number of initiatives to bring down prices of various commodities.
“The nation will see that soon the prices start falling down”, he added.
Hafeez Shaikh said in order to control inflation, the government did not borrow money from State Bank of Pakistan (SBP) besides minimizing budget deficit by reducing unnecessary expenditures.
Proposing the provinces to play their role in controlling inflation, he said that hoarding and profiteering issues must be resolved through administrative measures.
