The Global Social Network

The recent press coverage of Pakistan in the western business press, particularly the Wall Street Journal and the Financial Times, has been fairly positive. While they all mention the negatives such political uncertainty and continuing violence, the reporters also acknowledge that the Pakistani economy is one the fastest growing in the world. The sectors mentioned include telecom, automobiles, energy, real estate and consumer products as being the drivers. How do you NEDians in Pakistan see the ground reality?

Certainly, the job market for NEDian is better than before, but still, if you compare how many engineers are being produced by various engineering universities and how many decent jobs are created by current economy, there is no match.

    Dozens of cheap drones were deployed against Abqaiq and Khurais oil fields to cut Saudi Aramco's production by half, according to multiple media reports. Saudi and US officials have blamed Iran for the destructive hit.
