Russia, Turkey, China, Iran, and Pakistan are proceeding in creating a Five-Nation Alliance, the role of Pakistan as a key partner in China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) will uplift the regions in balance and peace. Pakistan has a massive entrepreneurial and youthful population, unique geography, and Prime Minister Imran Khan at the helm to bring The Five Nation Block economies to play a key role in changing global landscapes of trade, imbalances, and inequalities on economic superiority. A new and positive landscape will emerge. Immense preparations and upskilling must unfold rapidly. The Bitter Medicine: Now, that the message from Covid19 delivered in simple language to the people across the world, offering three options; acquire enlightenment, grab a body bag, or go for both, the same harshness now threatening economies of the world, simple words; digitize, mobilize or just go bust. The majority of 200 nations already lined up on that danger list, many dozens will not survive. The realities, once again, prove that the best time to “digitize” economies…was a decade ago, the best time to “re-design” productivity and performance…was a decade ago and the best times to “upskilling” working citizenry…was also a decade ago. The pandemic recovery erased that lost decade demanding action today, or else. There is no time to waste: Therefore, how long will it take national economic leaderships to bring all trade groups like Chambers of Commerce, National Trade Associations under and Export bodies under large umbrellas of digital platforms? Most importantly and to start immediately, what is stopping to create fast-track intense upskilling of “trade groups” itself and their senior management on operational and digitization aspects? The same applies to upskill the frontline management of the top major trading and economic growth Public Sectors Agencies where lack of global age upskilling and lack of digitization is suffocating national economies. Especially when such national mobilizations are not new, funding dependent but rather deployment hungry and execution starved. Identifications of such blockades are the initial major steps. The Deep Silence: This formula of digitization is never the secret, but its execution is a serious threat, but why? Despite the availability of almost free technologies, any open discussion in any major Public or Private Sectors department anywhere in the world immediately exposes some 50% redundancy of surrounding staff and equally 50% lack of competency to deal with the required challenges. Therefore, staying quiet or appearing overly busy is normally the case, and strangulation of local economic progress carries on as accepted normalcy. Follow the trail of deep silence. The creation of regional and national debates with authoritative contents now in order to replace lip service and halfbaked rhetoric is under pandemic watch. Lahore Chamber of Commerce is already taking a lead and having a high-level discussion on the digitization of national entrepreneurialism and mobilization of the Small-Medium Business economy of the nation on upskilling for improved exportability and innovative excellence. Additional Chambers and Associations also coming under the umbrella and soon the number will rise to 1,000,000 small-medium enterprises. Explore Pentiana Project how it may apply in your national or global regions. Winners and losers are increasingly visible and equally divided; there are digitized nations versus paper-pushing nations, upskilled nations versus ‘no idea, what you are talking about’ nations, plus many dusty dry-spin nations versus bubbly wet-spin nations with monsoon rains of freshly printed currency. However, there are also very many emerging nations, hardworking young and old men, and women ready for the task and anxious to optimize their full potentials. Some billion displaced are looking for new thinking and options. This is a great opportunity to boldly lead with specific turnkey answers and go for real ‘value-creation-models’ for local grassroots prosperity and walk away from ‘value-manipulations models’ where the last globalization fiasco is choking the world. There is 11,000 Chamber of Commerce with 45 million combined members worldwide. There are also some 100,000 National Trade Associations all serving the business communities, local/global economies, and national leaderships. Each nation has now the capability to adapt to platform economy; upskilling of small-medium businesses, where the main driving engines of local prosperity are hidden. Today, upskilling for frontline management on digitization and entrepreneurialism with innovative excellence a nation-by-nation challenge.
