The speaker examined labor, financial, scientific and technical resources of Pakistan, pointed out the peculiarities of foreign economic policy (trade balance and trade structure of exports), and also compared the economic potential of Pakistan and Bangladesh. The considered indicators do not allow us to speak about the growth of Islamabad's political influence in the short and medium term, but this will not be an obstacle to pursuing a proactive foreign policy.

The conference is organized by the Faculty of World Economy and International Affairs of the HSE University.
