This initiative aims to make the country and its people self-sufficient in every sense, and is pushing for bold reforms such as economic infrastructure technology-driven system, vibrant demographics and demand as a pillar of reform, agricultural supply chain reform and clarification of tax rationalization laws.

The company announced that it will support companies to obtain global outlets and create jobs with a shipment of 10 billion dollars and 1 million people by 2025.
