Pakistan is not a poor country but it is poor in management. Blessed with abundance of natural resources like sixth largest population, seventh largest gas reserves, and unique geographic and geo-strategic location. Huge mineral resources and excellent tourism. Potential Pakistan is not a poor country but is rich country in resources. Due to misuse, lack of utilization of these resources and bad management Pakistan is turned into a poor country. Unique Geographic and Geo-Strategic Location
Pakistan is located in western region of south Asia on the route connecting Pakistan with a chain of Muslim countries towards the west and east. In the West Pakistan is connected with brotherly countries of Iran and Afghanistan which in turn connect Pakistan with Muslim countries of Middle East or western Asia. Pakistan can become rich by doing trade and cooperation in science, technology, social and economic field with these Muslim countries. On the other hand, Pakistan is located in monsoon climate region. She has variety of four seasons of summer, winter, autumn, spring. Pakistan grows variety of crops.
Pakistan has variety of physio-geographic regions. In the north-west and north-east Pakistan is surrounded by mountains and hills. These mountains protect Pakistan from foreign invaders, cold wind from central Asia and help in diverting monsoon winds to Pakistan. In the central region and West Pakistan has Potohwar and Baluchistan plateau. Deposits of minerals and minerals and fossils fuels like gas, coal, petroleum, gold, copper, silver, limestone, salt are largely found in Pakistan. In the central and southern region, Pakistan has fertile Indus plain irrigated by Indus River and its tributaries. Pakistan has largest irrigation network in the world. Pakistan has border with two most populous and nuclear power countries of the world India and china.
Pakistan is endowed with enormous mineral resources. Pakistan has more non-metallic minerals than metallic minerals. Among the non-metallic minerals Pakistan possess fossil fuels like coal, gas and petroleum. Pakistan has also the other non-metallic minerals like limestone, salt, gypsum, marble, china clay and Sulphur etc. Pakistan has seventh largest coal reserves in the world. Pakistan’s coal mines are Tharparkar, Makarwal, Dandot, tut etc. Pakistan’s largest coal mines are located at Tharparkar amounting 182 billion tons’ reserves. Pakistan has world 11th (31th) gas reserves in the world. Main gas fields are Sui (Sibi) Baluchistan, Marri gas field, Mazar gas field, Balksar gas field etc. Pakistan has also sufficient oil potential. Main oil fields of Pakistan are Dhulian, Mazari oil field, Khashkeli oil field etc. Currently Pakistan is deficient in oil so imports oil from abroad. Pakistan has expected potential oil reserves in mountains, plateaus and undersea regions which must drilled and mined for oil production by geological survey of Pakistan and foreign companies. Pakistan possess large salt mines in plateau and sea coast regions. Largest salt mines are located in Khewra. Pakistan has abundant limestone and gypsum which is used for production of cement and construction of buildings. Pakistan has marble reserves located in Mardan, Nowshehra, Kohistan, Dir and Chitral that can be used in constructing magnificent buildings. Sulphur is also found in Koh-i-Sultan. Though deficient in metallic minerals yet Pakistan possess abundant metallic minerals. Gold, silver and copper are found in Copper-Saindak project, Chagi, Baluchistan. Iran is found in KalaBagh and Muslim Bagh. Uranium is found in Dera Ghazi Khan.
Pakistan is gifted with variety of climatic regions and seasons so Pakistan grows variety of crops. Pakistan grows rice, wheat, cotton and sugar can in the Indus plain. Pakistan grows tobacco, maize, grains etc. and it grows fruits in the northern areas and Baluchistan plateaus due to cold climate. Due to cheap labor and largest irrigation network excellent forming occurs, due to fertile Indus plain and availability of water Pakistan can produce surplus production of the crops. But due to use of traditional farming methods and explosive population. Along with lack of introduction of modern farming methods like mechanization (use of machines), low use of fertilizers and less use of hybrid seeds Pakistan does not export grains because they are consumed in Pakistan but unfortunately, due to poor management of human resources literacy rate in Pakistan is 58 percent only due to lack of investment in human resources beggary, poverty unemployment, criminals, drug addicts etc. are on the rise.
Fortunately, Pakistan has longest summer season from April to October on the average 12 hours long day occurs. Pakistan can invest in solar energy and generate electricity to overcome energy crisis. Availability of electricity will increase production of industries and agricultural crops through solar tube wells. Thus exports of Pakistan will be increased which can make Pakistan a developed country. Recently, Pakistan has established Quaid-e-Azam solar power project in Bahawalpur which produces 1000 MW electricity which good decision.
Pakistan has abundant wind belts for installing wind mills to produce electricity. Jhampir Thatta is ideal for windmills production of electricity due to persistent heavy blowing winds. Besides, Arabian Sea near Karachi is also suitable for windmills electricity production. Ship mounted windmill project by turkey in Arabian Sea is best example.
Interior structure of Pakistan’s earth and core is hot. Deep shafts can be drilled inside. The interior of earth and heat can be supplied outside for generation of electricity.
Pakistan has numerous natural and various enchanting sights that please the eye of beholder. Pakistan has remained the best travel destination in 2018 around the globe. Pakistan country is filled with natural beauty and has a lot of worth-seeing places that attract foreigners such as Nattar valley, Neelum valley, azad Kashmir, Shangrila resort, skardu, Gojal valley, Deosai Plains, Rama Meadow, Ayun and Bumburet valley, white palace swat, Gorakh hills, Ranikot fort etc all these sights make us fall in love with Pakistan and its beauty but due to security issues and un pleasant environment make travelers reluctant to visit.
