The Emergence of Pakistani-American Entrepreneurs in U.S.-Pakistan Relations
Last year, Pathways to Change – Pakistan Policy Symposium, a two-day event jointly organized by the Wilson Center and INDUS, convened expert scholars, academics, and practitioners from the United States and Pakistan to explore Pakistan’s recent achievements in economic, political, and foreign affairs as well as its opportunities to address current and future challenges. Speakers and panelists focused on identifying practical, innovative, and above all actionable policy solutions. The following series of policy briefs, which draw on discussions from the symposium, will be of interest to the academic and scholarly communities; diaspora audiences; business and policy circles; and any general audiences interested in Pakistan, U.S.- Pakistan relations, or international relations on the whole.
Amra Tareen, the head of innovation at Bed Bath & Beyond, and Amber Jamil, the communication and outreach director for INDUS, explain that Pakistani-American financiers are “uniquely positioned partners in the promotion of investment and social entrepreneurship in Pakistan.” They have the potential to strengthen Pakistan’s economy, enhance its prospects to become a regional economic leader, and more broadly to bring more breadth to the U.S.-Pakistan relationship.
