New security policy covers all the important areas which are need of the hour

Dr. Salman Shah (Advisor to Chief Minister Punjab): The new security policy covers all the important areas which are the need of the hour. It includes defense, social protection, quality of life of common man and economic empowerment among others. The economy should be strong enough to generate resources to strengthen national defense as well as meeting needs of people. For the last four decades, our security policy was intertwined with situation in Afghanistan. Now, it is time to move towards peace and economic development. We also need to develop connectivity with Central Asian countries through Afghanistan. The documentation of national security policy is very important as we want to focus on economic development for the next forty years. Pakistan is blessed with large number of youth and there is need to provide training and education to them to harness their potential.
