APNS thanks Info Minster
KARACHI: The APNS appreciates Ms. Marium Aurangzeb, Federal Information Minister for her efforts in addressing the issues faced by the newspapers industry.
Mr. Sarmad Ali, President and Ms. Nazafreen Saigol Lakhani Secretary General of the All Pakistan Newspapers Society have noted with pleasure that on the request of the APNS, the Federal Govt has withdrawn the ban on purchase of newspapers and magazines by the Federal Govt departments. The ban was imposed as an austerity measure by the Federal Govt in July, 2022. The withdrawal of the ban could only be possible with the keen and personal interest taken by the Federal Information Minister.
The APNS thanks Ms. Marium Aurangzeb for her media friendly approach and efforts put in to solve the problems of newspapers industry. The APNS is confident that the Ministry would also play its positive role in helping the newspapers industry to brave the current financial crunch especially it will finalise the long pending issue of increase in the govt advertising rates and quantum of govt advertising.
