Lahore School of Economics

A distinguished seat of learning, teaching and research

Against heavy odds

Dr Rashid Amjad    

With the country reaching its 75th anniversary, there has been much doom and gloom as the economy passes through another downturn triggered by its recurring trade imbalance and debt crises. Yet, it is important to remind ourselves that notwithstanding its near-insurmountable challenges, the economy has achieved some remarkable successes — even if it has not realised its full potential.

Pakistan has increased its per capita income from around $100 in 1950 to (a vastly underestimated) $1,750 in 2022. Starting with a non-existent modern manufacturing sector, it has built one up thanks to an earlier generation of dynamic entrepreneurs and traders, many of whom had migrated from India. It today contributes 15 per cent of GDP. Literacy rates have increased from overall 15pc to 70pc for males and 50pc for females, with significant growth in higher education in recent years.
