Pakistan Development Summit on Aug 17

Pakistan's 70th Independence anniversary

By Muhammad Luqman
To discuss the economic development in Pakistan over the last 70 years, a Development Summit is being organized in Islamabad , the capital of the South Asian country on August 17.
The conference will deliberate upon the policies responsible for growth in agricultural, industrial and services sector.
The moot also aims to look at the reforms of the current government of Pakistan to overcome the shortcomings of the previous policy frameworks, particularly, the socioeconomic initiatives undertaken the Pakistan Vision 2025 to whom the recent economic resurgence can be attributed, according to Planning and Development Ministry officials.
The objectives of the conference would be achieved by engaging different stakeholder from academia, media, government and leading industry players. The stakeholder engagement is proposed to initiate a development discourse which stems from a positive outlook on the achievements of the past and nourishes from the efficient and effective policy framework of the present.
The resulting “Development Discourse” can rope in the development journey of Pakistan making it inclusive and sustainable. Such a discourse is also much needed to dispel the negativity and atmosphere of despair which are a threat to the much needed stability required for continuation of policies, the officials hoped.
The 70 years of Pakistan Development Expo, being organized on the sidelines of the Summit will present a visual journey of decade-wise development timeline of key projects. Starting from 1947, the major development projects of each decade will be presented.
