Comments on: China, Pakistan and the financial crisis Perspectives on Pakistan Thu, 01 Oct 2015 19:31:05 +0000 hourly 1 By: Shin'i Kira Sat, 24 Jan 2009 10:42:30 +0000 they should have spend more money on its economy than on supporting terrorism. pak politicians stole money and plundered the economy. spreading red herrings.

sadly what i see is that their currency & market will nose dive.. making the situation worse. the taliban people will rise more. this will adversely affect neighbouring India and China (xin juang province).

By: khaliq chohan Mon, 01 Dec 2008 11:47:24 +0000 pakistan should invest heavily in I.T sector and take advantage of its young population in education ,training etc …. we should stop relying on foreign loans we should have better ties with Iran and middle east rather then depend on usa which is only using pakistan for its dirty laundry. its time for us to have better ties with Russia too because usa backed policies are failing in pakistan.

By: Tariq J Qureshi Fri, 24 Oct 2008 00:50:01 +0000 Thw world needs to keep the hands clean of Pakistan. Every loan for one pretext or another is plundered and poor people of Pakistan are left paying the interest for the rest of heir lifes. Right now the hue and cry is regarding the ‘interest payments’ due on loans of last 20 years.
Strangely enough Pakistan politians have more properties out of Pakistan then in Pakistan. Mr. Zardari and his late wife (BB) own over $10B worth of property just in Dubai alone, including the 10 acre estate on the beach from where she left to return to Pakistan. There are 10 highrise buildings in Dubai which include the hotel where Zardari had meeings with Nawaz Sharif…. Similar properties are spread in London, France and USA. Same is the case for Mr. Sharif and all members of his family who owns properties in London and Dubai. Just image between these top wig parties every time they are out of power, they take off to their safe havens created out of these plundering.

One solution is left. Let investors come and build the dams and wind farms to deliver electric for dead industry of Pakistan under 20 years BOT. Look at what investors did for telecom sector.

Next loan donor’s like any investment company can run public infrastructure projects themselves to protect their investment. There are all laws on paper in Pakistan, but the ‘yes-man’ establishment infrastructure is willing to go into shady deals with anyone offering them a cut by-passing every law in the book.

The nation and youth in Pakistan (65% population) is helpless, but still have the street power to break the chains imposed by politicians. Would you beleive the despair in heart of every Pakistani when a political system was high-jacked to elect Zardari. Shame is on PPP jaila’s who talk of democracy, but did not have the courage to stand up seeing a wrong happan right in front of their eyes. It is their own fault and they deserve to be ruled by a 19 year prince Bilawal. You really are still slaves! No guts to say anything when you see a wrong happan…

No, the nation of Pakistan is not ordained to be slaves of the polictical masters. It’s time they hit he rock bottom as a failed state to rise out of the ashes!
Good luck..

In my opinion Pakistan still have some chance if he take some loan form IMF but this is matter for shame for any country to take loan for this purpose but i think this is no time for Pakistan to see about self-esteem. This time Pakistan need to maintain its stability just like India did in 1991.

But the main question will arise after that
what Pakistan government want?
What he dream for the people for his country? are they still try to feeding militant in Line of control to again start disturbance in India or rather than take systemic steps for his development and improve his economy?

I think this time Pakistan really need food rather than weapon and Kashmir .

If he improve his economy and make healthy relation with India then Kashmir issue will become matter of cooperation not controversy

This is my opinion Any comments ?

By: A M R Sat, 18 Oct 2008 17:10:44 +0000 Not only Pakistan, countries do not require any help from any third country but can achieve their goals, if it stop supporting of any hat or extreme activities, it does not mean or refer any kind of state sponsored activities, but elimination should be from all sections of the society, starting from individual, group, orgazinations, departments etc. Govt’s should know that, if they encouraging any individual or Group for any extreme action against any third party may stand one day as third party. Encouraging extremism costing Life, Property, Economy etc…

By: hemo Fri, 17 Oct 2008 16:31:19 +0000 Speaking of bilateral relationship, Pak and China is founding an exreme good example in Asia and in the globe. If we look at Europe and North America, it’s so strage to find that Asia countries are against each other. It’s the legacy from British evade. Asian countries’s reunion under China’s power will bring peace and properous to peoples there.

By: hrothgar Fri, 17 Oct 2008 12:35:35 +0000 If pakistan wishes to tie its future to china so be it. but unless this beautiful country learns to stand on its own two feet it cannot hope to prosper. A crutch is still a crutch be it be of gold.

This country has since its creation has outscored over india on all development parameters till 1980’s but after that it has slowly spiralled down to the state it is in now.

Pakistan has been let down by its leaders – military, political and religious. The brave people of pakistan are making a valiant effort to come out of this mess. They have chosen a democratic government, have raised voice against terrorism and are being vocal about what is wrong and how it can be corrected.

I just hope that the citizens realize that they cannot go around looking for dole outs. Nobody want to be friends with a weaker or poorer nation and if they profess to be friends – be sure to read the fine print. a friendship between a strong and weak nation is flawed in its very concept. The stronger nation would always extract a price for its help. Look what America has done to pakistan. Just a few years back America was the bestest friend of pakistan. after using pakistan against russia, they abandoned it. then came back after a few years with threat to blow the country to stone age. is this how true friends act.

But this is what you get whenever there is a partnership of unequals. The stronger always knows that it can arm twist the weaker nation. This jubilation about chinese friendship is all good but pakistan should realize that this is again a partnership between unequals. There is nothing to stop china from extracting its pound of flesh when the time comes.

Pakistan stand on your feet and take charge of your own destiny. You are too good and too proud a people to go around with a begging bowl in hand.
