Karachi, October 16, 2018 (PPI-OT): In order to create awareness amongst the general public about stock investments, Pakistan Stock Exchange (PSX) conducted an awareness session at Gilgit, Gilgit-Baltistan. Dr. Muhammad Iqbal, Minister for Works, Government of GB, was the chief guest at the occasion.

Limited.
Speaking at the event, Mr. Imran Ali, President Gilgit-Baltistan Chamber of Commerce and Industry, said that it was encouraging that PSX was taking keen interest to educate the public on stock investments by holding this event for the second time in the region.
