ISLAMABAD: On Tuesday, the federal cabinet approved the establishment of a high-powered sugar reform committee to establish a long-term strategy for reforming the sugar industry in the light of an inquiry commission’s recommendations.
Federal Minister for Industry Hammad Azhar has proposed the committee.
The cabinet meeting headed by Prime Minister Imran Khan feared there would be a new spike in the country’s coronavirus cases if the people did not take preventive measures for Eidul Azha during holidays.
The meeting also discussed the issue of alleged bogus professional degrees of Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) pilots in great detail. It was told that the national flag carrier’s 450 pilots had been cleared and 37 suspended for suspecting credentials.
The cabinet held a detailed discussion on the sugar sector and review how to bring reforms in it, said Information Minister Shibli Faraz in a post-cabinet meeting press conference.
