    Wait till CPEC gets going. There is a reason why we are suddenly witnessing such an upsurge in positive economic prospects for Pakistan. Pakistan wasn't even mentioned a couple of years ago. We know why we have so much attention suddenly.

    The country with less corruption will grow quicker. Bangladesh is way too corrupt.

    You guys have some edges over us. Bigger population, more lands, more natural resources, good location(border with India, China, Iran, Afghanistan) .

    Iran was under sanctions. That is why IPI gas pipeline could not make progress.

    Afghanistan does not have an economy.

    Trade with India to a large extent depends on the the political situation prevailing. At times trade picks up and then it drys out.

    With China our trade is slowly but gradually increasing.

    As per World Bank's report, BD is ahead. They aren't included in Economist's list.

    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.
