KARACHI: Federal Minister for Maritime affairs, Ali Zaidi on Thursday guaranteed to reduce prevailing cargo tariff of 4.2 billion dollars being paid by Pakistan to foreign ships.

Addressing the passing out parade of Pakistan Marine Academy cadets in Karachi, Ali Zaidi said that the government last year paid 4.2 billion dollars to foreign cargo ships and present government is working to cut down this amount.

“We people of Pakistan are responsible for present state of affairs of the country but now, we will bring it to its right place,” Zaidi said.

The minister while advising the cadets asked them to add the spirit in their efforts if they want to achieve something in the world.

Maritime Affairs minister said that 20 years ago when he met Prime minister Imran Khan he found that spirit in him. He didn’t compromise on his vision through the years.

“Those who admit defeat lose their battles, those who don’t, won’t be defeated, the minister said.

The nations that have 1080 kilometers long coastline don’t borrow, they lend money to others, the minister further said.

The maritime minister said that now every big company in the world is coming to Pakistan for investment.
