Closing Remarks by Husain Haqqani Ambassador of Pakistan to the United States
Fallout from the killing of Osama bin Laden in a Pakistani garrison town has prompted an anxious reassessment of all facets of the complex, troubled alliance between the United States and Pakistan. A new report from CGD's Study Group on U.S. Development Strategy in Pakistan shines light on a crucial and too-often neglected aspect of the relationship: the aid, trade and investment policies that constitute America's effort to support Pakistan's development.
The group's message is alarming, but with a note of optimism. Two years into a new approach to engagement with Pakistan, the authors write, the U.S. development program still lacks coherent priorities, tools to manage and adjust them as conditions require, and a system to measure and report progress. Yet there are signs that the program has laid the foundation to do better—and there is a window of opportunity now to refocus and strengthen the program.
The report authors present the key findings and recommendations and invite comments and questions from a distinguished expert panel and members of the audience.
