ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan on Wednesday said that the biggest asset we have is our youth and Pakistan will soon lead the entire region.
Addressing at a demonstration ceremony of National Incubation Centre Startups at PM House, he said that almighty Allah has blessed Pakistan with innumerable abilities but people do not succeed because they admit defeat.
Imran Khan said that the vibrant societies always encouraged its youth to propel, adding that only a government making headway, could dare to promote new ideas.
He said fear of failure prevented the people to take big steps and thus undermined their true potential.

The prime minister said behind a successful person was an undeterred struggle based on concentration, firm determination, ability to overcome challenges and also to rise from ashes.
He also lauded the initiative to back startups, which he said showed that Pakistan was heading in right direction as only open minds bred new concepts.
“With startups playing a key role in economic growth and financial inclusion, the government would facilitate talented entrepreneurs in transforming their innovative ideas into sustainable businesses,” he said.
The prime minister said the objective of startups was to encourage people who wanted to achieve and make progress in life.
The startup programme is in line with the government’s vision of accelerated digitization and transformation of Pakistan into a knowledge-based economy to spur economic growth through innovation and entrepreneurship.
