The Jackson Institute for Global Affairs and the Yale School of Management will co-host the talk, “The Future of US-Pakistan Relations: A Conversation with General Pervez Musharraf, former President of Pakistan,” moderated by award-winning journalist Bob Woodward. The talk is part of the School of Management’s Leaders Forum series.
As president of Pakistan from 1999-2008, Gen. Musharraf played a crucial role in fighting the global war on terrorism. During that time, he empowered the people of Pakistan at the grass roots level by introducing a local government system. One of his most notable achievements was the turnaround of an almost bankrupt state in 1999; he and his government helped Pakistan come off the list of Highly Indebted Poor Countries.
