Economically, in a few decades, Pakistan is set to become the world’s eighteenth largest economy by GDP. In terms of GDP purchasing power parity, Pakistan will be the fifteenth largest.
Today, Pakistan is the fortieth largest economy with a GDP of $270 billion. According to Goldman Sachs, it will have become a $3.5 trillion economy by 2050.
Pakistan will surpass today’s giant economies of Saudi Arabia, Iran, Malaysia, Singapore, Australia and Taiwan. If governed well, Pakistan could easily leave Italy, Canada and Egypt behind in the 2050 rankings.
