Pakistan: Innovations in Human Development

William A. Schreyer Chair in Global Analysis
Director, Project on Prosperity and Development
Please join us for an armchair conversation with Minister Ahsan Iqbal, Minister of Planning, Reforms, and Development in Pakistan, on the role of human resource development in Pakistan’s future. To harness the potential economic impact of improved opportunities, Pakistan is committed to promoting a number of initiatives, including developing a knowledge-based economy through accessible higher education and vocational training for its citizens. The Planning Ministry is at the forefront of some of these ideas, including the "knowledge corridor" that seeks a stronger partnership in higher education between Pakistan and the United States. Minister Iqbal will discuss the challenges and opportunities in this area as well as broader vision of the future of Pakistan’s economic growth based on the country's 10-year national plan, the Pakistan Vision 2025, developed by the Planning Ministry.
Please send your RSVP to PPD@CSIS.org with your name and affiliation.
