  • policymaking

In Pakistan’s early days, Quaid faced a difficult task but remained committed to his duty, and the nation proved its determination to succeed under his leadership. While it has been a more challenging task for Pakistan, it has continued to show its survival spirit, its capacity to adapt to changing situations under the guidance of Jinnah and his skilled office members. I have never seen a government as hardworking as the government of Pakistan, said James A. Michener, a Pakistani visitor in his early years. It lays itself out with its bootstraps of intellectuals.”
