THE PAKISTAN DEVELOPMENT REVIEW
Inaugural Address -1993
Professor Syed Nawab Haider Naqvi, Distinguished Participants, Ladies and Gentlemen: It is a great privilege for me to inaugurate the Ninth Annual General Meeting of the Pakistan Society of Development Economists (PSDE) and exchange ideas with eminent national and international economists, planners and scholars. It is a source of great satisfaction to note the contribution of PSDE to enhance knowledge in the area of economic development in Pakistan and abroad. Since its formal inception in 1983, the Society has grown in many ways-it has broadened its scope as well as gained in-depth, and has also attained the stature of a prestigious international forum, which provides an opportunity to outstanding scholars, policy-makers and economists to shed light on new ideas. The Society and its office bearers deserve our congratulations on conducting their affairs in such a competent and constructive manner.
