From Business Correspondent

ISLAMABAD: The government has allowed train, industry, and small businesses, including shopping malls, to resume their activities amid strict adherence to standard operating procedures.

This was announced by Minister for Information and Broadcasting Shibli Faraz at a news conference here yesterday. Welcoming the Supreme Court’s decision to reopen the markets and shopping malls, he said whatever we are doing is aimed at strengthening economy and supporting the downtrodden in the time of COVID-19 pandemic.

He said shopping malls have been allowed to remain open and it will be their decision to continue their business activities even on Saturday and Sunday. He, however, appealed the people to observe precautionary measures and SOPs to prevent spread of the Coronavirus. The Minister said industrial units have also been permitted to start their activities and even they are allowed to continue the industry on Eid holidays.
