“Many would be sur­prised to hear that Karachi is the “Phil­an­thropic Cap­i­tal of the World”, with the high­est per capita do­na­tion and char­ity.” Saad Aman­ul­lah Khan, CEO, Gil­lette Pak­istan Ltd. ◆ “Bangladesh is a priv­i­leged coun­try as it has been counted among least de­vel­oped na­tions by the EU and US. It has been given fa­cil­i­ties and its tex­tile sec­tor has been spon­sored and sup­ported fi­nan­cially by the big eco­nomic pow­ers. This is the rea­son for shift­ing the tex­tile in­dus­try from Pak­istan to Bangladesh.”

Makhdoom Sha­habud­din, Tex­tile Min­is­ter, Pak­istan ◆

“With al­most one bil­lion peo­ple go­ing to bed hun­gry ev­ery night, it is more im­por­tant than ever be­fore that we lever­age pri­vate sec­tor ex­per­tise to pro­vide vul­ner­a­ble pop­u­la­tions with the right food.”

Josette Sheeran, Ex­ec­u­tive Di­rec­tor, World Food

Pro­gramme ◆ “I’m not go­ing to point out regions, but the fact is that there is no re­cov­ery in the de­vel­oped world, it’s a job­less re­cov­ery. So I fail to un­der­stand why in Davos those who come here should have con­cern for In­dia. They should have con­cerns do­mes­ti­cally too. In­dia can take care of it­self. I can as­sure you.”

Anand Sharma, Trade Min­is­ter, In­dia ◆ “The sec­tors of live­stock, dairy, fish­eries, poul­try and agri­cul­ture are the foun­da­tion of some of the pro­gres­sive economies of the world. Pak­istan in gen­eral and Sindh in par­tic­u­lar has vast po­ten­tial for mod­ern and tech­nol­ogy driven prac­tices.”

Younus Dagha, Sec­re­tary In­vest­ment, Sindh, Pak­istan ◆ “The dan­ger here is that the tail wags the dog through­out this cri­sis; in other words the in­abil­ity to deal with the spe­cific prob­lems in the pe­riph­ery causes shock­waves across the whole Euro­pean econ­omy and the world econ­omy.”

Ge­orge Os­borne, Chan­cel­lor of the Ex­che­quer, Bri­tain ◆
