PIDE Focus Vol. 1, No. 2, June-July 2006
PIDE is in the process of strengthening its institutional capacity and restructuring its research programme. With its broad agenda of developing quality research for informed policy and debate, PIDE is critically positioned to take a long-term view of Pakistan’s economic and social issues, and to provide sound underpinnings of an appropriate economic policy to achieve sustainable growth and improve the living standard of its people. To achieve these objectives, PIDE has developed its work programme around a number of themes relating to institutions and governance of human capital, innovation and growth, industrial organisation, markets and regulation, macroeconomics and finance, agricultural production-related issues, and population and social dynamics.
