CAMBRIDGE (Massachusetts) April 17 (APP): Pakistan’s Ambassador to the UN, Dr. Maleeha Lodhi, said at a Pakistani students forum at Harvard University that it was important to create a culture of optimism in the country to empower it to meet its various challenges.

Speaking at the Harvard Pakistan Forum, she said that at a time when the country was making gains on the security and economic fronts the remaining challenges would best be met by an expression of national self confidence and self belief.”And this means adopting a positive outlook”, she added.

Although Ambassador Lodhi’s talk was about Pakistan’s role in international politics, she spoke at length about domestic issues particularly the demographic transition which, if managed well by investing in education, would enable the country to reap a demographic dividend.
