Average Pakistani Needs 621+ Years to Earn $1 Million

A recent study released by and Numbeo shows that a common Pakistani, earning an average monthly salary, requires approximately 621 years and three months to reach the $1 million mark.

The analysts examined around 102 countries globally, with citizens of Switzerland emerging as the fastest ones to earn $1 million in just 14 years and three months. Switzerland is followed by Singapore, where an ordinary citizen can reach the $1 million mark in 16 years and 11 months.
