Imran Khan at WEF

Imran Khan got on stage at Davos for the first time in his position as Prime Minister of Pakistan.

He explained his vision to create a welfare state after seeing one in action in the UK.

“This is my vision – all the policies which we make are towards that end – to make Pakistan into a humane country where the government takes responsibility for the weaker sections of society.”

Good governance

He focused on the importance of good management in Pakistan.

“Sadly, our governance deteriorated in the past 30 years. That is one of the biggest reasons we have not been able to fill our potential as a country. From now on, my biggest challenge is how we can improve our state institutions, so we can improve our governance, so we can tap our potential.”

Avoiding Quarrels

He talked about the geopolitics of the region, saying the country won’t be able to rebuild its economy without peace and stability.

He said it was a mistake for Pakistan to have entered the War on Terror and vowed only to be a peace broker or mediator going forward.

“From now onwards, Pakistan will only partner another country in peace. We would not become part of any other conflict. We would not join any other country in conflict.”

He went to say that Pakistan is helping mediate in Afghanistan. And he gave his opinion on intensification conflict between the US and Iran.

“It will be a disaster – it will cause poverty in the world – and God knows how long it may go on. I spoke to President Trump yesterday, and I told him it would be a disaster for us if this war starts. In my opinion, it will be insanity.”

Caring for the planet

Finally, he spoke for the beauty of his country and the need to maintain a healthy environment. To keep the environment green, he is committed to a campaign to plant 10 billion trees.

“What I loved about Pakistan was its wilderness, its mountains. With age, I saw this wilderness disappearing and the way we destroyed our forests cover. I always resolved that I would make sure that we preserve the God-given beauty of this country.”
