It is at once a privilege as well as a daunting task to speak to this distinguished audience of academics, advisors, officials, and other guests who have extensive experience in the analysis, formulation, and implementation of policy, not just in Pakistan but in numerous countries abroad. I am also honoured that my host is the distinguished Vice-Chancellor of the Pakistan Institute of Development Economics, a prolific scholar and a practitioner who has written extensively on economics, on policy, and on Pakistan. It is also a pleasure to be among old friends and former colleagues who have taught me so much and from whom I hope again to learn today.
