The lack of export diversification in Pakistan has remained a critical impediment to growth in Pakistan. Therefore, the focus of recent research work by a team headed by Dr. Azam Chaudhry of the Lahore School of Economics was to identify potential export areas that address the chronically underperforming export sector.
