The leading global think tank for international affairs and security, Centre for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) will organise series of discussions across the Pakistan for entrepreneurial potential of Pakistan. CSIS is working closely with Mishal Pakistan, a leading research institution in the country working for economic development.
Senior expert and renowned economist and fellow at the CSIS, Sadika Hameed will visit Pakistan soon to discuss connecting Pakistani entrepreneurs in the ways in which they can help US businesses, in conjunction with Mishal Pakistan. Sadika Hameed is very well known in Washington, DC for her ability to translate Pakistani objectives into US policy agendas.
Sadika Hameed shared that developing economies bear a disproportionate share of the costs of corruption, which impedes poverty reduction strategies. Reducing corruption, which attracts foreign investors, should be a major focus not just of development assistance and diplomacy, but also of trade coalitions and business community efforts. The discussions will seek to identify the competitive industries/sectors in Pakistan, which are of interest to businesses and high net worth individuals in the United States as well as find ways to connect Pakistani entrepreneurs with US businesses in the competitive sectors.
