Forbes released its Forbes’ 30 under 30 Asia list this year and we are proud to say this that nine Pakistanis were included in this list!
It’s always amazing to see Pakistanis acing in every sector of life. And when their hard work and efforts are recognized internationally, then the pride is doubled.
Here’s what the international magazine said about Pakistan:
“It’s probably fair to say that Pakistan often gets a raw deal when it comes to international media coverage, with headlines usually dominated by themes like religious extremism and terrorism, women’s rights or border conflicts. And while these areas are worthy of coverage, this South Asian nation has many more positive stories that don’t see the light of day, such as the incredible pool of young talent pushing boundaries in numerous industries and disciplines.”- Forbes report
