Islamabad: According to a Gilani Research Foundation Survey carried out by Gallup Pakistan, 46% Pakistanis view globalization as a step towards progress; 33% view it negatively.
A nationally representative sample of men and women from across the four provinces was asked “Some people see increasing globalization as a positive step towards progress whereas others see it as a negative development because it threatens to destroy our local culture and heritage.
What is your opinion on this?” Responding to this, 46% said they viewed globalization as a positive step towards progress, 33% viewed it as a negative step and 21% did not give a respond.
The study was released by Gilani foundation and carried out by Gallup Pakistan, the Pakistani affiliate of Gallup International.
The recent survey was carried out among a sample of 2639 men and women in rural and urban areas of all four provinces of the country, during July 16, 2013 – July 22, 2013. Error margin is estimated to be approximately ± 2-3 per cent at 95% confidence level.
