Punjab Chief Minister Muhammad Shahbaz Sharif said Punjab Growth Strategy 2018 is being evolved for increasing growth rate in the province and effective measures would be taken for this purpose. He also said there is a need for introducing reforms in institutions for achieving the targets of development. "Capacity-building of institutions and improvement in the system can help promote investment as well as generate new job opportunities," he added.

He expressed these views while addressing a meeting regarding Punjab Growth Strategy 2018 here on Monday, disclosed an official. Provincial Ministers, Assembly Members, Vice Chairman Lahore Development Authority, Punjab Chief Secretary, secretaries of concerned departments and economists were present.

Addressing the meeting, the Chief Minister said information technology is being used for the capacity-building of government departments and rapid progress is being made towards establishment of e-government.
