Prime Minister (PM) Imran Khan on Tuesday said that 22 billion people are a huge power for any country as they can contribute in the economy in an effective manner.
While addressing a launching ceremony of “Raast” program, the PM suggested that to strengthen ourselves as a nation, we should take advantage from technology.
The Raast program will provide benefit to the common man, he added.
The PM told that Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government is striving to take our country to the digital revolution.
According to a United Nations Development Program (UNDP) report, we have diminished poverty in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) and this leads us to get re-elected in the province, he stated.The Raast programme is a digital platform developed by the State Bank of Pakistan for remittances and transactions between citizens, businesses and government agencies.
The digitally faster and easier system will facilitate the common man in accessing banking channels and electronic transactions.
At the same time, it will help various financial institutions, including commercial banks, microfinance institutions and banks, government agencies and Fintax, to access and connect to the central system at low-cost with time saving.
After its success at the level of direct business and investment last year, it has been launched at the level of citizens for the convenience of the common man.
