    This is amazing, when country is unstable by all means and Power and Gas outages as rampant as they possibly can, a 20% increase in exports YOY, its astonishing, Unless they are fudging. I strongly believe,Pakistan can reach top 20 Economies by around 2025 if policies devised Dimagh Se and implemented Dil Se. Very optimistic for long term but pessimistic for short term.
