    I feel Pakistan needs to get rid of Zamindar system like India did after partition also. Freeing up land for the poor people will be one of the best ways to elevate them.

    No. They're LDC because their HDI is categorized as Low. Being LDC is a very bad thing.

    No ma'am. Bangladesh is ahead of Pakistan in HDI. And it is categorized as medium like India. Check it again. I can't post links from my phone.

    That depends. Govt has plans to move out of LDC by 2024. Before that they want to complete some projects which would require huge amount of loans. Being in LDC allows you to get loans at a very small interest.

    It will work out. CPEC will give you a massive boost too. You just need to make sure things at your home stays in control. Try to reduce corruption and terrorism at your home. Other things will work out fine.

    I beg to differ. Economy of Bangladesh have been quite stable in last 15 years. We averaged 6.5% yearly growth rate last decade. Lately it has risen to 7%. It is expected that growth rate will rise to 8-9% after some projects are completed.

    Well terrorism should not exist anywhere. But this is no utopia. It exists and needs to be dealt wiith

    Bangladesh probably will overtake Pakistan and India per capita because it is smaller and has less population growth. It probably can't by nominal GDP and definitely not by PPP.

    Very unlikely, there is a very large gap and it is very likely for Pakistan's growth rate to catch up to or even surpass that of Bangladesh's.

    Pakistan needs to focus on these few elements:
    Provide the Cheapest & Best Quality:
    Electricity
    Water & Sewerage Facility
    Telecom
    Gas
    Transport

    Free Education from Montessori to Ph.D Level...
    Free Health Care for All....

    I can assure you that in 5 years time Pakistan will be called a developed country...

    Strangely Bangladesh is not in this list

    Not that easy my friend, it take years to make stable economy and then people selected person like Zardari to kill all the efforts
