Dr. Shahid Amjad emphasized on the need to alleviate poverty through expenditure on Education, Health and Housing.

He blamed the inadequacy of health services provision as the biggest cause of families falling prey to poverty, to be reformed through, compulsory coverage of hospitalization expenditures. On the housing front,he further proposed that public housing schemes should be reintroduced and that payments made towards housing rent should be directed towards housing loans. To finance these expenditures, Dr. Amjad suggested that the tax base be widened to include the energy sector, real estate and the stock market. Addressing macro-economic imbalances, he said that the Current Account Deficit should be minimized through exchange rate adjustments and revisiting the idea of increasing tariff rates.
