KARACHI: FPCCI President, Ghazanfar Bilour has hailed the government decision of one-time tax amnesty scheme to bring back the offshore wealth of Pakistanis deposited with foreign banks.
In a statement issued Thursday, he said several countries have introduced One-time Amnesty Scheme for acceleration in the economic growth through production and utilization of hidden liquid assets in the main stream of the economy.
