Finance Minister Shaukat Tarin on Friday shared that Pakistan’s stock market has claimed the highest profit of the previous 10 years in 2021.

Taking to Twitter from his personal handle, Shaukat Tarin shared a graph from Securities and Exchange Companies of Pakistan (SECP) showing year on year growth of profits in the stock market after taxes.

He said that the stock market has secured aggregate profits of Rs258 billion in 2021, the highest ever during the last 10 years.

Adviser to PM on Political Communication Shahbaz Gill also commented on the report and said that the statistics shared by the finance minister were meant for those who launched propaganda on the decline of the economy in the country.
