Pakistan has always been a very unpredictable country. Whether it be sports or economy, the nation has proved to have done wonders. An example of this is the amount invested in the country for development.
According to reports, the number of money invested in a country saw a positive increase by 37% in 2017 compared to the previous year.
On closer examination, the increase over 2016 levels is attributable to a few megaprojects in China and Indonesia as well as a recovery in South Asia, led mainly by Pakistan.
