THE PAKISTAN DEVELOPMENT REVIEW
Inaugural Address – 1986
Mr President of the Society, Secretary of the Society, Distinguished Guests, Ladies and Gentlemen: It gives me great pleasure to inaugurate the Third Annual General Meeting of the Pakistan Society of Development Economists (PSDE). I am happy to note that, within only four years of its existence, the Society has become one of the most important national forums for discussing economic and demographic issues relating to Pakistan’s economy and has attracted to its fold a large number of social scientists from all over the world. The first and second Annual General Meetings of the Society, held in the last two years, have already generated a substantial body of relevant knowledge about development economics and Pakistan’s economy. I am sure that the third meeting will be even more fruitful in this respect.
