Global Agenda Council on Pakistan 2012-2014

Pakistan is the world’s sixth most populous nation and, given the young demographic (the median age is 22), it should be well positioned for robust economic growth provided critical steps are taken to improve the country’s human development. The key challenges are insufficient access to quality education, the lack of employment opportunities and limited potential to expand into new markets due to barriers with its much larger neighbour, India.
