About Us

The World Bank, in collaboration with LUMS, is conducting a future visioning exercise titled Pakistan@100: Shaping the Future to analyze what Pakistan will look like when it turns 100 years old in 2047. The report will contribute, through analysis and by facilitating strategic discussions, to a debate on Pakistan’s long-term development challenges and opportunities. The report will articulate key recommendations for Pakistan to address these challenges in order to become an upper-middle income country by 2047.
