Providing a non-technical understanding of weak economic growth and performance of the public sector in Pakistan relative to that of peer countries, this book serves as an interesting introduction to policymakers, journ alists, and civil society organizations interested in carrying out research and advocacy work towards improving economic governance in the country. Delving one step ahead from recent literature on Pakistan's economy, the author focuses on why reform of institutions dealing with economic policy regulation and management is imperative, while simultaneously identifying pending structural reforms that Pakistan's economy could pursue for inclusive growth and social justice. Exploring the fragmented structure of tax revenue mobilization, public expenditure management, energy governance, trade and transit framework, and the labour market, this book serves as an important resource for readers wishing to have an understanding of economic challenges and reform options.
