Pakistan’s Prime Minister Imran Khan is receiving a lot of love on social media for the statements he has made about his country and the prospective plans laid out for its economy.
The former cricketer-turned-PM participated in a discussion as part of the Future Investment Initiative’s conference in Riyadh.
Many of Khan’s supporters took to Twitter to express just how proud they were that for once, a Pakistani leader is talking about the issues their country’s facing- without a paper in hand to read from.

Many are praising Khan for being a ‘genuine leader’ speaking about Pakistan without a paper chit in hand
Listening to PM Imran Khan speaking at the Investors Conference in Saudi Arabia; feeling good that after 11 year Pakistan, a nation of 220 million, has a genuine leader that can speak at an international event without a paper chit in hand, Well Done PM!

Imran Khan has gone where no Pakistani leader has before
…by encouraging women entrepreneurs in his nation (among other things). PM Khan announced developments geared towards Naya Pakistan, holding peace talks with India, bolstering Pakistan’s foreign services, clamping down on money laundering and more.
