Incidentally, Pakistan on its part isn’t short of playing the credit junkie. This procedure has not delivered the profits and is just making Pakistan sink further into obligation. Pakistan should be intently watching improvements in Sri Lanka, for it very well may be next country to confront the outcomes of awful financial strategies and weighty obligation loads.
