    Thank you His Excellency, Hon. Prime Minister for giving us the change we wanted...Looking forward for it to hit Rs.200/- before Christmas so that we all can have a great 2019 by paying more for food, petrol, utility, more taxes and keep nourishing the most productive GOV and its Ministers ever. Thank you once again.

    Despite short comings country had direction before 2015. Now everyone is focused on cursing the country, passing the blame and there is nobody to concentrate on real issues of the country.

    Bad economic management does much more harm to the country than corruption. Something to be remember in 2020 election.

    This is terrible, a lot of businesses will have a very bad year ahead.

    Riza Wednesday, 19 September 2018 05:26 PM

    Fire the BOI Board. They have no shame and should be prosecuted for doing private deals and blocking other foreign investment. The most useless set of corrupt stooges.
