ABSTRACT

COVID-19 and Pakistan: The Economic Fallout   [open pdf - 0B]

From the Abstract: "Pakistan has been one of the countries worst affected by COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019], with the economic disruption caused by the pandemic exacerbating an already existing crisis. This paper discusses how the public health crisis has affected some of the most critical sectors of the Pakistani economy. While the government has implemented some mitigation measures, they are inadequate to counter the impact of the pandemic. The paper analyses the likely fallout of a near-meltdown of Pakistan's economy on the nation's hybrid political system that is dominated by the military. Finally, it examines the possible impact of Pakistan's economic crisis on its strategic environment and strategic alignments, especially its relations with India."
