Deputy Chairman Planning Commission Mohammed Jehanzeb Khan chaired a Progress Review meeting on PSDP Plus here in Islamabad on Wednesday. Secretary Planning Mathar Niaz rana, CEO PPP Authority Malik Ahamd,, Provincial Chief Secretaries, representative from PM Office and senior officials of the Planning Commission were also present in the meeting.

Deputy Chairman Planning Commission said that government wants to encourage private sector to leverage investments. Our priority is to get state of the art technology in the best possible indigenization. He said that Public Private Partnership Authority would only consider complex proposals that require high order thinking and analysis, proposals with viability gaps, and should exclude any routine projects for which other financial mediums are available.

While reviewing the projects presented by Government of Punjab, DCPC directed that in addition to infrastructure projects, Punjab should also concentrate on projects related to agriculture sector, service provisions, private cattle markets and other rich resources available to gain better economic productivity.

Government of KP presented proposals for establishment of tourists’ resorts and informed that their feasibility studies are being worked upon. The DCPC advised that tourism is all about marketing therefore qualified international consultants need to be hired. The request for proposal must include references, relevant capabilities and track record. For seeking high quality consultants, embassies and missions should also be kept in parallel.

Deputy Chairman Planning Commission said that Federal government has given special importance to Balochistan in the PSDP projects likewise an extra mile will be taken for Baluchistan in PSDP Plus. He directed PPP Authority to identify viable projects for Baluchistan province after consultation with Baluchistan Government.
