Iftikhar Ahmad and Usman Qadir ()

No 2021:34, PIDE Knowledge Brief from Pakistan Institute of Development Economics

Abstract: Is Pakistan an attractive destination for foreign investment in the region? To put it bluntly, the answer is, No. The reason why is simple: Pakistan has had volatile and episodic growth since the 1950s, and we: have low rates of local investment, lag in innovation and suffer from low productivity. We need strong efforts to come out of this vicious circle of low investment, low innovation and low productivity.
