Nadeem ul Haque
” By 2050 , Pakistan Had Achieved A Miracle _ It Had Transformed Itself From A Poverty Ridden , Malnourished , Corrupt and Aid Dependent Country In 2015 To Qualifying For HIGH INCOME Category By World Bank and The Top Decile in Both The Competitiveness Index and Social Progress Index By 2050 .
2015 , Pakistan Was Full of Civil Strife , Terrorism , Poor Governance, Rampart Corruption . All That Changed by 2050 . Where Once Travel Advisories Warned People From Visiting , It Is Now Key Destination For Foreign Investors , Students , Research and Even Tourism . Once Basket Case Seeking Aid , Now It Has Large Sovereign Wealth Fund .
Once Homeland of Hordes on Unemployed Youth and An Exporter of Cheap Labor Today Pakistan Is A Center of Higher Learning , Research and 7th Largest Patent Recipient In The World .
How Did This Transformation Take Place ? Was It Good Policy or Good Luck ? Was This Process Driven by External Aid or Domestic Pressure ? What Can We Learn From This Experience ? ”
