Pakistan’s economy grew by 5.8% in 2018, the highest in 13 years. Last year, the GDP growth was recorded at 5.4%, according to the State Bank of Pakistan (SBP) annual report released yesterday. Graphic, above.

Contrary to popular opinion at that time, this blog was the first to post Harvard’s 6% GDP growth prediction for Pakistan in Express Tribune.

One key highlight was that large-scale manufacturing picked up, and CPEC-related projects stimulated economic activities inducing firms to enhance their production capacities.

The inflation stayed at 3.9% (below).
