Lahore : On the eve New Year 2017, I convey my profound good wishes to the nation with the hope and prayers that it brings more happiness and prosperity for Pakistanis.
The upcoming 2017 will surely mark a new beginning in the history of Pakistan to the fact that we have decisively turned a page in our history and have significantly overcome the challenges of extremism and terrorism.
The dawn of 2017 will surely make us candidly reflect on the year gone by with a view to analyze the high points and shortcomings we experienced in our national life. The tidings of the New Year will instill in us the prudence to fine tune tenets of our national existence and imbue them with spirit of tolerance and fortitude.
I strongly believe that Pakistan is finally heading towards achieving not too distant goal of a peaceful land and a developed economy.
My government is dedicatedly oriented to provide well laid out means for Pakistanis to build upon their well deserved future plans. It is my earnest wish that the good tidings of New Year usher in a groundswell of selfless national unity, emphatic appreciation of national imperatives and amiable understanding of national motives.
I undertake to resolutely pursue the national programs my government has solemnly undertaken and steadfastly vouch to deliver upon all the plans my government stands for.
With the sanguine hope that the nation will make the best of the New Year.
I wish you all a very Happy New Year.
