Pakistan - Gurupedia (1951 words)
Pakistan is a heavily populated country, suffering from internal political and religious disputes, lack of foreign investment, and a costly confrontation with neighboring India.
Pakistan's economic outlook has brightened in recent years in conjunction with a great improvement in its foreign exchange position, notably its current-account surplus and rapid growth in hard currency reserves.
Pakistan's economy, thought to be highly vulnerable to external and internal shocks, was unexpectedly resilient in the face of adverse events such as the Asian financial crisis, global recession, drought, the post-9/11 military action in Afghanistan, and tensions with India.
