Resources and industry of Pakistan

Ayesha Taqi

Economy of Pakistan is 25th largest economy of the world. Basically, Pakistan is an agriculture country but industries have 24% share in the GDP of Pakistan. Textile industry, leather, sports and other industries are major industries of Pakistan.
Certainly, unusual and unstable circumstances affect industries. Peaceful environment is an essential component for industrialization. Repeated power outages and gas load-shedding obstruct development of industrial sector, leaving us with no option but to rely on imported products from other countries at higher rates, which causes the inflation and unemployment and other problems.
In short, the resources of Pakistan (coal, gas, etc) should be properly utilized for rapid growth of industrial sector which is one of the only recipes for national development.
