SMEDA holds awareness session for journalists


No nation can achieve the goal of economic prosperity without bringing entrepreneurship revolution in the country.

Small and Medium Enterprises Development Authority (SMEDA) Chief Executive Officer Hashim Raza expressed these views while addressing a joint awareness session of Punjab Union of Journalists (PUJ) and Lahore Press Club (LPC) at a local hotel on Wednesday.

PUJ President Qamar Zaman Bhatti and LPC President Arshad Ansari also addressed the session.

LPC Secretary Zahid Chaudhry and other office-bearers and members of both the governing bodies were present on this occasion. Hashim Raza said that SMEs despite contributing about 40 per cent into GDP were provided with a share of only three per cent from the formal financial resources.—APP
