KARACHI: PSX Managing Director Farrukh H Khan said the bourse had not been closed, even for a single minute, due to the tough situation arisen because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
“We managed to keep the exchange running in very difficult situation,” though the economic activities remained almost suspended across the world, he added.
He said in the aftermath of coronavirus, the world was still faced with serious economic crisis, but Pakistan’s economy had started recovering.
The PSX, he said, was offering the best long-term return and stressed on investment in the stock market for long term to reap its real benefits. There was need to focus more on the market to capitalize its huge potential and prospects.
He said the visit of President Alvi and Governor Imran Ismail to the PSX was very encouraging for the management.
During the interactive meeting, many issues relating to the capital market were discussed and both the dignitaries assured their support in resolution of certain issues to encourage investment in the capital market and listing of companies on the Pakistan Stock Exchange. | YouTube Channel
