The FATF greylist for Pakistan isn't as big of an economic disaster as it is made out to be (they already have way bigger ones).
1) A lot of countries in the FATF greylist are doing pretty well from a foreign investment standpoint. eg- Mauritius or any other tax haven.

2) Pak's supposed exclusion from the list won't make it any more desirable for the investors to come in. Pak has been in and out of this greylist for the last 12-13 years, and the FDI trend show no real dip or surge as its status in the 'list' changes.

Their best FDI runup in this century was during the pre-2008 crisis era when there was an abundant liquidity in the international capital market. For the rest of the years, Pakistan's numbers have stayed pretty stable at low levels. An investor doesn't necessarily checks a list before putting money in.

Immu and his loudmouth "kaabina" (Cabinet) made a big fuss out of it and made it a prestige issue for the country of mard-e-momin. Once they had their foot in their mouth after making such tall claims, they started this vilaap of "politicisation of a technical forum", "price of 'absolutely not'", "the only stumbling block in Pak's economic prosperity is FATF". If these morons had kept quiet they would have had less of an embarrassment, they haven't been getting money anyway.

That paper is also from a Paki. Similar to their claims of "humne to 70 hazaar se zaayed shehri aur 150 billion dollar se zyada ka nuksaan saha hai Amreekanon ki jung mein".

The research paper titled 'Bearing the cost of global politics - the impact of FATF grey-listing on Pakistan's economy' states that that grey-listing events spanning from 2008 to 2019, may have resulted in total GDP losses worth USD 38 billion, The Express Tribune reported.

The report published by Tabadlab said the losses are worked out on the basis of a decrease in consumption expenditures, foreign direct investment and exports.

According to the research paper, a large portion of total losses can be attributed to the reduction in household and government consumption expenditures.
But yeah, it has caused some damage to them.

Best to ignore the gibberish that pakistan puts out. $38 billion loss from FATF Grey listing, $100-150-200 billion loss from war on terror etc, they pull out these figures from their backsides to console themselves on how great they would have otherwise been and to play victim. Nobody is about to invest in Pakistan , FATF or no FATF. There would be some losses but nowhere near these outlandish figures being put out.

Exactly. Forget war on terror, the radicalization in general public is so high, terror incidents will happen regardless. Plus water scarcity, mulla menace, low scientific temperament, third grade public infrastructure and Islamic priorities of general public make Pakistan a major detractor when it comes to any kind of real foreign investment.
