He said the South Punjab Administrative Secretariat has started functions and nobody would reverse the creation of south Punjab province.
Qureshi said the CPEC is a game changer and it would create job opportunities and route for progress in southern Punjab.
The south Punjab will be a business hub in coming days. He said the government is taking favorable measures and initiatives for the establishment of new industries in south Punjab. Roomi said the government should devise a strategy for the promotion of high value crops.
He suggested the government to allocate maximum resources for high value crops besides preparing a foolproof cotton management strategy to get a bumper crop.
The strategy must ensure financial incentives to growers, he said. Roomi underlined the need for expediting work on health projects in south Punjab.
He offered the philanthropists are ready to contribute in health projects. He told the Foreign Minister that his family had put up numbers of patient’s health welfare projects at Nishtar hospital and he is interested to expand it to the south Punjab districts.
He underlined the need to expand education infrastructure in south Punjab to end backwardness, creating new jobs in the region.
Qureshi welcomed his suggestions and said all are practicable and valuable. He said the government would soon start work on his suggestions.
