Abstract

This working paper considers the structural challenges that confront the Pakistan economy beyond the immediate impositions of contending with Covid19 (coronavirus). Using a general thematic approach, the paper seeks to look beyond the urgent preoccupations of Covid19 to grapple with the important considerations in terms of longer-term economic hurdles that must be systematically addressed in the years to come.
