Vision 2025

China-Pak Economic Corridor
China-Pak Economic Corridor
  1. The seven pillars of Vision 2025 are based on the imperatives of embracing change and transformation, and to create new opportunities based on our innate strengths. Pakistan's untapped potential provides room for optimism that Pakistan could emerge as a great nation and economic power if resources are generated, managed and used efficiently.
  2. I am confident that this Vision and the subsequent strategy will lay down the foundations of a prosperous, just and harmonious society much before 2025. While going through the document, one can realize that managing the 7th most populous country of the world is a gigantic task but managing it during transition amidst internal and external challenges is even more demanding. I have full faith in the capabilities of my nation and in its ability to manage these challenges. I am glad to know that Vision 2025 acknowledges the forces of technology and knowledge which have entirely changed the way we conduct transactions, interact with each other, create value, and generate business.
