After one decade of incessant development, the global economy is fading out of the blue. The global pandemic of covid-19 has reconfigured the world socially, psychologically, economically and environmentally. This sloping situation has changed the way we work, the way we care, and the way we live the life. It is still uncertain about the post-pandemic functionality of the society. It is pertinent to know that who will be the global economic prospect and how quickly the world will recover from this global recession.
Notably, the factor-driven economies will be at the colossal prey in this drive of economic recovery. They were already on the shakier economic settings after 2009’s global recession and now are hard-pressed with respect to health and economic calamity. The trade deficit is widening hence, the external debt has reached the highest levels. There are assumptions that things may quickly go back to normal but still, the developing economies would shrink by roughly 2% and their output would reduce by nearly 3%. They will have a long-lasting damage, lesser credible growth for extended period of time, which will grave the impact on poverty and wide inequality gap. However, the World Bank, and IMF are ramping up their support to the developing economies.
The policymakers of Pakistan have the real challenge to face as they have a very narrow window to limit the pain in less time. They must focus on the timely and prioritized measures especially in case of health sector which is grossly underequipped. The prime focus is and will be to save lives, ensure livability, help the businesses, and guarantee the public services. The unprecedented ways will help the economy to manage the instantaneous response and speed up the revitalization. If the policymakers will not be corresponding as required, the damage will necessitate a much larger response later. Currently, this reckless change has brought the changing work nature to working remotely which is the only viable option left. Or working smartly by adopting all the necessary preemptive measures is somewhat the better option for the world. We must act divisively to lay the foundation for the sustainable solutions to the robust recovery.
