Economy and infrastructure... By Hashim

27 December, 2013

It is an established truth that the foundation of any state is a sound economy and a good infrastructure is part of that. However, unfortunately, both the economy and proper infrastructure have not remained the priority of our past successive rulers. Our rulers did not plan to upgrade the transport and energy infrastructure. They have not launched any activity for infrastructure modernisation during the past several years with the goal to improve the country's overall competitiveness, especially in Sindh. It is on record that unparalleled funds (billions of rupees) were allocated for urban infrastructure development during Musharraf's regime for the provincial capital of Karachi and the second biggest city of Sindh province, Hyderabad, but the way the funds were utilised could not improve urban infrastructure as was desired.

Pakistan's economy needs to be restructured. There should be huge spending on infrastructure, education, health, agriculture, livestock and roads in Sindh and Balochistan. We must have sense on how to use our capital. This brings us to the youth. The next generation has to be trained in the required trades and disciplines that can capture local and international markets. Above all, federal and provincial governments must invest in the people, farmers, small farms, industries, job opportunities, rural development, town and city development in the country and curb corruption in bureaucracy and technocracy for Pakistan to grow towards a sustainable economy and development.
