A Powerful Vision in an Increasingly Fragmented World.The World Economic Forum’s 11th Annual Meeting of New Champions has also called for inclusive, participatory growth to avert looming inequality crisis. As the Fourth Industrial Revolution starts to permeate all aspects of our lives, ensuring that economic growth is inclusive and participatory will be the only Way to avert a looming inequality crisis. Science and technology are not ends and means in themselves, and neither is economic progress.
Addressing the meeting Pakistani Federal Minister for Planning and Development Ahsan Iqbal said that One Belt, One Road offered a powerful vision in today’s world. In a country where the China- Pakistan Economic Corridor, part of One Belt, One Road, is expected to generate $57 billion in investment, the effects are already being felt with significant capital flows in the energy and telecommunications sectors and with Mandarin Chinese now the most studied language in the South Asian nation.
