My dear Countrymen!
Today we are celebrating our independence Day with a new zeal and vigor. I am confident that our determination will pave the way for political, economic and social stability in the coming days. Our country has been confronted with many challenges since the last few years but the nation has boldly faced them through its unshakeable resolve.
The Government of Pakistan resolutely decided to take action in order to cleanse various regions and cities of terrorism, extremism and lawlessness under which the Armed Forces and other law enforcement agencies are playing effective role as a result of which peace is being restored in the country. The government has also adopted sound policies to improve the economy which has created better business environment leading to increased opportunities for domestic and international investment. It is satisfying to note that foreign investors are increasingly turning to Pakistan for investment. These developments augur well for our economic future which testifies that new possibilities and opportunities are unfolding for Pakistan.
I am happy to note that consensus on democracy is producing positive results. We need to initiate the process of correction individually, then from homes and communities to derive more benefits and ensure that the democratic values take roots at the state, governmental and administrative levels to pave the way for real and meaningful change.
Let us unite to secure a better and brighter future for our coming generations by following in the footsteps of our illustrious founding fathers.
Happy Independence Day
