Prime Minister Imran Khan has got another feather in his cap. The Washington-based Foreign Policy magazine has listed his name among the top 100 global thinkers.
Foreign Policy magazine is the reputed name in the media industry and has been covering world leaders and foreign policies of different states since 1970. The media house posts content almost daily on its website while its magazine print comes bi-monthly. The magazine is celebrating a decade of featuring world global thinkers list.
Although it’s not the first time that any Pakistani is featured in the list, PM Imran Khan is the first-ever statesman from Pakistan that has been covered by Foreign Policy. Earlier, Malala Yousafzai was also featured in the list.
Imran Khan has been given the 29th place in the top 100 world global thinkers and he also managed to get to the front page of the magazine.
“In 2018, Khan, a former cricket star, finally got the job he had long coveted; prime minister. His reward was an incredibly difficult-to-do list, starting with Pakistan’s looming fiscal and debt crisis,” says Foreign Policy.
PM Imran Khan is among the top 100 world global thinkers due to his charisma, influence and recent talks with different political leaders, especially from the Muslim world. After coming in power, PM Imran Khan is reframing Pakistan’s foreign policy, and he is meeting different Muslim leaders and shifting Pakistan’s relations from the USA to other countries like China.
It is indeed a moment of pride for Pakistan that its leader has been featured among the names like Barack Obama. Although Pakistan is facing extreme challenges, with the proper intent and policy-making the country can quickly transform and become prosperous.
