Pakistan Development Forum 2010

The Pakistan Development Forum was held from 14-15th November, 2010 at Serena, Islamabad. The forum provides the opportunity to have a comprehensive dialogue with our development partners on Government's strategic direction, priorities & policies. Deliberations of the PDF influence forthcoming country Partnership Programs/Strategies of the Donors. Additionally, feedback from the development community facilitates alignment of Government policy with international best practices. The event was particularly significant for this year in view of the devastation caused by the floods and the consequential economic fallout.
