The Economy of Modern Sindh delves into the different aspects of Sindh’s economy. It highlights the socioeconomic problems that have beset Sindh and proposes a multi-pronged strategy to address these challenges.

Basir Shamsie, President & CEO, JS Bank stated “JS Bank strongly supports progressive and sustainable initiatives for engaging the people of Pakistan. Modern economy of Sindh reflects back into the time where Sindh was the center of economic progress and how it has lost its competitive advantage to other provinces today. The book proposes fine measures that will contribute significantly towards the economic revival of Sindh and further help regain its lost stature. We at JS Bank strive to highlight Pakistani authors and their work.”
