ISLAMABAD: President Dr Arif Alvi has said that achieving progress and prosperity is related to the true representation and participation of the public for any country, as no country could wish to make progress without the participation of its people.  

Addressing an awards distribution ceremony of the annual Invitational Golf Tournament held at Margalla Greens Golf Club on Saturday, the President said that being the fifth most populous country in the world, Pakistan possesses the huge potential to excel in every field of life. 

Alvi said that the public of a country acts as a vital driving force for making contributions to the overall progress and development.

“Over 250 million people of Pakistan, with their combined efforts, could make a difference and could transform and rebuild the country by utilizing their intellect and potential,” he remarked.
