ISLAMABAD: President Pakistan Businessmen and Intellectuals Forum (PBIF), President AKIA, Senior Vice Chairman of the Businessmen Panel of FPCCI and former provincial minister Mian Zahid Hussain on Wednesday welcomed the decision of the Prime Minister to appoint new Chairman FBR from the private sector.

The government didn’t rely on the bureaucrats for the important post which indicates their seriousness in improving things and enhancing revenue collection, he said.

Mian Zahid Hussain said that the business community will fully cooperate with the Chairman FBR Syed Shabbar Zaidi and give him positive recommendations aimed at the betterment of the economy.

He said that Mr. Zaidi is a globally known expert who has in-depth knowledge of the Pakistani economy and the problems which are holding it back.

Improving revenue collection without hurting masses and existing taxpayers would be his most important test while the business community hope that he will also introduce transparency, simplicity, and tackle the weaknesses of the system professionally.
