‘Pakistan to be among top economies in 2025’

LAHORE: Federal Minister for Planning, Development and Reform Ahsan Iqbal claims that Pakistan will be among top 25 economies of the world by 2025.

“Pakistan is a successful emerging state which can be developed economically through self-belief and defeating the negativity,” he said while addressing an alumni reunion at the University of Engineering and Technology (UET) here on Saturday.

He said the country needed seven to eight percent transformational growth in the next 10 years to mobilise resources for social uplift of the backward areas and create jobs for growing population.

He said the Vision-2025 and China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) would help realise the dream of economically developed Pakistan.
