Inaugural Address

Sardar Farooq Ahmed Khan Leghari


Dr Sarfraz Khan Qureshi, Director of Pakistan Institute of
Development Economics, Distinguished Guests, Ladies and Gentlemen, It is
a great pleasure for me to be present here this morning. Over the years,
the Pakistan Society of Development Economists has made notable
contributions to the profession of Economics and Planning. It has also
helped to strengthen the evolution of scientific knowledge in
Development Economics. More importantly, it has given an institutional
shape to the exchange of ideas between economists, other social
scientists, and policy-makers. I am happy to note that a large number of
distinguished academics and policy-makers from all over the world
regularly participate in the Society’s meetings. I earnestly hope that
useful policy prescriptions will emerge from the deliberations that take
place here about the major issues in economy. Indeed, I wish to extend
my appreciation to the Society for providing a lively and effective
platform both to researchers and policy-makers.
