ECONOMIC GROWTH AND DEVELOPMENT: NEW DIRECTIONS
The purpose of the Annual General Meeting and Conference of the Pakistan Society of Development Economists (PSDE) is to provide a forum where leading professional economists, other social scientists, and policy-makers can exchange ideas on the vital economic and social issues facing Pakistan. With the passage of time, the philosophy of development has undergone a profound change. There is now, as never before, an increasing awareness of the complexities involved in the development process which has engendered a greater sense of realism. The Annual General Meeting and Conference of the Society is also an occasion for stock-taking of the research work done, at PIDE and elsewhere, on various socio-economic problems of Pakistan, as well as for suggesting new initiatives for further research. These Meetings provide the much-needed communication amongst the economists, policy-makers, and various schools of interested observers of the ongoing debate concerning development-related issues. “Economic Growth and Development: New Directions” has been chosen as the theme of the 27th Annual General Meeting and Conference. The objective is to take the current dialogue on the new development thinking forward and to encourage research on future directions for policy reforms aimed at enhancing the country’s long-term growth prospects. The Conference will address important topics including Macroeconomic Policies for Sustainable Growth, Economic Reforms, Competitiveness, Entrepreneurship, and Poverty and Income Distribution. This year’s Conference includes four invited lectures which will be delivered by Professor Ashwani Saith, Dr Jomo Kwame Sundaram, Dr Asim Ijaz Khwaja and Dr Atif Mian. Three Panel Discussions will focus on important issues including economic reforms and competitiveness, inclusive growth, and entrepreneurship.
