ISLAMABAD: On Monday, President Dr. Arif Alvi administered the oath of office to Shaukat Fayaz Ahmed Tarin who would be holding the portfolio of Minister for Finance. The swearing-in ceremony was held at the Aiwan-e-Sadr. After the oath, the president also extended felicitation to the newly-sworn member of the federal cabinet. Moreover, the ceremony was attended by the federal and provincial ministers, State Bank Governor Raza Baqir and other senior government officers.
