The Economy of Modern Sindh is an extensive treatise that launches an inquiry into the various aspects that constitute the economy of Sindh. It brings to light the socio-economic challenges faced by the people of Sindh, and puts forward a multi-faceted strategy to address these problems effectively.
Ishrat Hussain is a renowned Pakistani economist and banker, and has penned down several highly acclaimed books and treatises outlining the course of economic progress and financial challenges. From 2008 to 2016, Ishrat Hussain served as the dean of the Institute of Business Administration, and before that, he served as the Governor of the State Bank of Pakistan, from 1999 to 2006. Presently, Mr. Hussain is an Advisor to Prime Minister Imran Khan for Institutional Reforms & Austerity.
Speaking on the occasion, Basir Shamsie, President & CEO JS Bank said, “JS Bank strongly supports progressive and sustainable initiatives for engaging the people of Pakistan. The modern economy of Sindh reflects back into the time where Sindh was the center of economic progress and how it has lost its competitive advantage to other provinces today.”
He continued, “The book proposes fine measures that will contribute significantly towards the economic revival of Sindh and further help regain its lost stature. We at JS Bank strive to highlight Pakistani authors and their work.”
