Description

Pakistan’s economy is a vital foundation for peace and stability in Pakistan and South Asia.  Reforms under the government of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, including structural reforms and fiscal policies, have boosted economic growth.  Efforts for improved regional connectivity and investment also hold promise for Pakistan’s economic development.  Still, the country needs to accelerate the pace of growth to be able to harness the demographic dividend and provide jobs to a large young population, and overcome security challenges which pose a threat to the overall economy.  Please join us for this special address by Finance Minister Dar on these important issues in Pakistan’s economic outlook.
