Najaf Iqbal Syed, Mayor, Chief Metropolitan Officer, Islamabad, Pakistan
“Islamabad is one of the best, liveable cities in Pakistan because of its environment—peaceful, calm and comparatively cleaner.”
While it was beautifully planned by a Greek architect-town planner,
weak enforcement in Islamabad led to the creation of private
residential colonies and slums. But in light of a rapidly growing
population, the city is rethinking its future development.
