LSM growth increases by 15%


Minister for Industries Khusro Bakhtyar Friday said the country’s Large Scale Manufacturing (LSM) industries growth had increased by 15 percent in the fiscal year (FY) 2020-21 which was the highest score in 10 years.

Addressing the press conference, he said due to COVID-19 outbreak, manufacturing and production sectors were badly affected around the globe and in Pakistan as well.

He said keeping in view the higher LSM growth, the country’s gross domestic product (GDP) growth was expected to go up to 4.5 percent as compared to previous year 3.7 percent.—APP
