NANOTECHNOLOGY AND ITS POTENTIAL APPLICATIONS FOR ENHANCING PAKISTAN'S ECONOMIC SECURITY
Keywords:Nanotechnology, Economic Security, Economy, Institutions
Due to persistent underperformance, Pakistan's national economy may be considered an Achilles heel of the country's security, which needs immediate course correction towards sustainable growth. Cutting-edge technologies like Nanotechnology (NT) are one avenue which presents the promise to provide our national economy with desired growth stimulus if efficiently employed. NT is a broad-based technology with potential applications in nearly every sector of the national economy. It can radically transform various sectors by creating an environment where responsible and societally responsive innovation can improve productivity and enhance economic opportunities. However, there are challenges associated with the acquisition and use of nanotechnology. This paper is envisaged to highlight the importance of nanotechnology, present viable recommendations to avail the potential opportunities, and indicate how to overcome the associated challenges.
