Asad Umer, a name that needs no introduction, is one of the most capable brains in PTI. Our words are not enough to explain the attributes this legend holds. With great power, comes great responsibilities and that’s exactly what Asad Umer took upon himself when he was sworn in as the Minister of Finance and Revenue. At the time when Pakistan’s economy was an all-time low, this iron-nerved man accepted the job where challenges like dwindling forex reserves, immediate load payments, record current deficit and gigantic balance of payment crisis, miserable economic conditions of state-owned enterprises are a few to name. Fighting against all odds, Asad Umer and team has successfully managed to minimize the balance of payment crisis, brought tax reforms, introduced incentives for export industry, increased remittance and cut down on unnecessary imports. The hard work has already started to pay off as a decrease in trade deficit can be observed along with a significant increase in exports and numerous job opportunities has sprung up because of the revival of textile industry. If this is what we get from him within 100 days, wait and see where he’ll take the country in the next 5 year!
