The Challenge

Pakistan's challenge lies in reviving its economy by increasing exports and reducing imports to ensure economic prosperity and stability. This requires strategic economic policies and efforts to balance trade.

What is NIB III?

We are delighted to unveil the launch of National Idea Bank, NIB-III, with a profound and impactful theme: “Transforming Trade Deficits into Surpluses!” In a world where we import extensively and export little, it's through visionary and innovative ideas that we can rewrite this narrative and usher in a brighter economic future.
