“Choose the path of peace, as this is the only way for the progress of peo­ple of Balochis­tan and Pak­istan.”

Prime Min­is­ter Yo­suf Raza Gi­lani ◆ “The whole com­mu­nity or group of com­mu­ni­ties is your lab­o­ra­tory and you are try­ing to change one vari­able or two vari­ables at a time and see what the im­pact is. When you have gone through this ex­per­i­men­ta­tion you have a model that you can have con­fi­dence in, and which is ro­bust and you can repli­cate that model and scale up. That link­age be­tween pri­vate sec­tor and so­cial en­trepreneur­ship is pretty strong and should get stronger. It is quite solid in my view.” Dr Ishrat Hus­sain, Dean and Di­rec­tor, In­sti­tute of Busi­ness Ad­min­is­tra­tion, Karachi ◆ “We have very vi­brant Com­mer­cial and Trade sec­tions at Lon­don and Manch­ester. Lon­don be­ing the hub of all trad­ing and com­mer­cial ac­tiv­i­ties plays a ma­jor role in mo­bil­is­ing in­vest­ment and trade. Their per­for­mance is re­flected in en­hanced trade and in­vest­ment ac­tiv­i­ties gen­er­at­ing more busi­ness to and fro. Only last year we in­tro­duced mar­ket­ing of man­goes in a big way at Har­rods. This year our tar­get has in­creased man­i­fold and god will­ing, our high qual­ity man­goes will be avail­able at lead­ing food halls.”

Wa­jid Sham­sul Hasan, High Com­mis­sioner of Pak­istan to UK ◆ “It is time that we make a long-term strat­egy for de­vel­op­ing the en­ergy sec­tor and re­duce de­pen­dence on im­ported fuel oil just as In­dia did in 2000.” Go­har Ejaz, fformer Chair­man, All Pak­istan Tex­tile Mills As­so­ci­a­tion (APTMA) ◆ “As In­dia and Pak­istan move to­wards the wel­come re­sump­tion of di­a­logue, New Delhi needs to fac­tor in a new re­al­ity: More than Kash­mir, it is the ac­cu­sa­tion that In­dia is steal­ing water that is rapidly be­com­ing the core is­sue in the Pak­istani es­tab­lish­ment’s nar­ra­tive about bi­lat­eral prob­lems.”

Sid­dharth Varadara­jan, Editor, The Hindu ◆ “Trade lib­er­al­iza­tion with In­dia is a sen­si­tive is­sue and it in­volves a num­ber of aspects. Be­fore fi­nal­iz­ing the neg­a­tive list, govern­ment should thor­oughly check all neg­a­tive im­pli­ca­tions it can have on dif­fer­ent in­dus­tries in Pak­istan.” Syed Nabeel Hashmi, Chair­man Pak­istan As­so­ci­a­tion of Au­to­mo­tive Parts Ac­ces­sories Man­u­fac­tur­ers (PAA­PAM) ◆
