> Economic Restructuring in Pakistan:
   From the Nuclear Tests to the Afghan War
 
Roundtable Discussion
April 06, 2002
PILDAT Secretariat, Lahore

   

Pakistan's economy hit new lows in the aftermath of the nuclear tests in 1998. Since then the economic reform efforts of the government have managed to stabilize the fiscal, monetary, external debt, and reserve indicators. This has, however, not led to the resumption of growth. It was, therefore, important to discuss the various social, economic and political issues arising out of this situation, and to come up with viable suggestions for improvement. Mr. Naqvi strongly believed that no improvement is possible in the economy and politics of Pakistan unless the state ideology is clearly defined, declared and practiced. Guest Speaker's presentation spanned about half an hour and was followed by about an hour of discussion.
