Reports from all the ministries and divisions were presented to the prime minister at the meeting.

"Discussions on actions already taken in terms of service delivery, austerity measures adopted and future plans were held in each case with a view how to improve performance under each of these heads further," said a statement issued from the PM's office.

"It was decided that each ministry would be further tasked with a specific strategic plan for implementation, spread over five years so that all concerned work in tandem for optimum output."

Such review meetings would be held every three months to evaluate the performance of the ministries and take new measures according to the situation.

The review meetings will also ensure the overall performance of the government is on track — the main aim of which is improving the quality of life of Pakistani citizens, the statement added.
