Currently, Pakistan is world’s 40th largest economy with a size of $0.3 trillion ($300 billion).
By 2030, Pakistan will become world’s 30th largest economy with a size of $0.6 trillion ($600 billion), gaining a 10-point increase in global ranking. The other high-ranking countries are Bangladesh (16 points up) and Philippines (11 points up).
As a cause for optimism, this writer/blog has been forecasting Pakistan’s economic future (this, this, and this) for over a decade, which Pakistan’s mainstream media – both electronic and print – conveniently ignore, thus creating pessimism among thousands of graduating classes about country’s future.
