This book is a collection of papers presented by eminent economists and social scientist during the two days national conference under the title "Socio-Economic Challenges Faced by Pakistan" held on 2nd & 3rd June 2008 at the Convention Centre of the International Islamic University (IIU), Islamabad. The conference was organized by the International Institute of Islamic Economics (IIIE) with the objective to provide an appropriate forum for debate and policy discussions on the emerging issues faced by the economy and to facilitate the governmental efforts, in the upcoming budget to address the emerging issues faced by the economy at the critical juncture which according to some was characterized as economic "melt down". That this national conference was indeed a success is manifest from overwhelming participation of the eminent economists from all parts of the country who either presented scholarly papers or took part in the dialogue by chairing various sessions of the conference and contributing their valuable suggestions.
