Vice-chancellor PIDE Dr. Nadeem ul Haque opens the forum by mentioning how important this discussion on the reform agenda would be. Seven chief economists each from federal, four provinces, Gilgit Baltistan and AJK are invited for the roundtable discussion. The discussion forum is set in collaboration with PIDE with GRASP and RASTA. Key questions to address in the discussion include · Why long-run growth and investment are low? · Why every time we need to go to IMF and how we can get rid of it? · How to achieve debt sustainability? · How to achieve a growth rate of 7-9% to accommodate the labor force entering the market? · What should our growth strategy be?
