The reason for putting this thread in this section is because I believe Pakistan needs to reset its education priorities.


Look at the following video. Its young, fresh college graduates or undergraduates are leading and working on such a critical project.


Pakistan having such a sizable population and especially its youth need to be engaged positively. There is an urgent need for it and I believe we need to set our direction.

Great thread. The problem with Pakistan is everything is sequestered in silos. There’s no culture of collaboration. Everyone wants to be the king of their own castle with nothing to show for. To make it worse, policymakers and planners lack the creative ability to think big or outside the box. Such rigid mentality has hampered Pakistan’s ability to emerge as a nation whose voice matters.

This has to change for Pakistan to achieve its potential. Pakistani leaders often talk about emulating China; but I would argue Pakistan should in fact emulate and integrate its economy and acidity with Turkey. It’s disastrous that Pakistani policymakers haven’t even been able to give this a serious thought. @Bilal Khan (Quwa)

Not just that, we have a very casual, laid back behaviour. We are such a big nation but not as productive as we should be.

Take the example of Turkey, again. They are exporting $30 billion of automobiles every year. Their population is less than half ours. Morocco, just recently started producing automobiles. Their exports now are $7 billion.

We need to change or else this small recovery we see in economy will be temporary.

Problem is Pakistan has stopped thinking in the ZAB. No more bold ideas. No more imagination. A political class that wants to maintain the status quo. Even Imran Khan and PTI. Pakistan requires a paradigm shift, not put more lipstick on the pig.
