This is the fourth such poster presentation of Analysis of Pakistan’s industry by students of the Economics Department, IoBM which provides young ideas and insights towards the industrial and economic development of Pakistan. When Pakistan came into being in 1947 it imported goods from India and there was a need to develop the industrial sector. It was imperative for our country to develop such industries that utilize indigenous natural resources in developing manufactured goods in order to strengthen the national economy.
