Risk management is a subject with which most people in our country are not familiar with, even though the environment in the country is such that the subject assumes all the more relevance. It is of course our education system and the general level of awareness that explains peoples ignorance about it. It must be stated that in our country where business has suffered a lot owing to terrorism and a number of other reasons and foreign investors who are loathe to come into the country and spend their money, a systematic campaign to raise awareness about risk management should be launched. This must be initiated at the provincial as well as national level. HASSAN ALI LAHORE.
