The PTI-led federal government of Pakistan is considering reopening of tourist spots, marriage halls, public parks, and the restaurants.
The Industries and Production Minister Hammad Azhar, in a tweet on Tuesday, said that the consultations regarding reopening of different sectors have been initiated with the provinces at the National Command and Operation Center (NCOC).
The federal government is consulting with the provincial governments on review and the possible reopening of the sectors that are on the negative list of opening up subject to the standard operating procedures (SOPs). It is pertinent to mention here that the negative list includes the businesses that were not allowed to operate during the lockdown due to the coronavirus outbreak.
The government of Pakistan is also reviewing the timing for markets and industries to perform business activities.
“We have collected the proposals and have asked provinces to finalize the standard operating procedures (SOPs) and enforcement methods,” Azhar said.
The proposals will now be taken to the National Coordination Committee headed by the Prime Minister of Pakistan Imran Khan to take the final decisions in this regard within a few days, he said.
