Pakistan Economy could boost up by long term strategies like agreements for cheap import, abolish of Black marketing of USD, development planning for Dam to have cheap Electricity etc. etc. But we are focusing on foreign aid and I am sorry to say our Economy is the "Beggars Economy" where Beggars can't be choosers.
