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.
