There are various types pf obstacles which are needed to reduce the poverty line in Pakistan some of them are stated such as: Increase in saving, control on rapidly growing population, use the advanced technology.
We should use the modern methods of production in all sectors of economy, check the inflation. In developing countries like Pakistan , the purchasing power of the people is low due to high rate of inflation. There should be a price stability in country. Optimum use of natural resources, reduce the burden of internal & external debts, BOP should be in surplus, enhance the economic growth rates. 

So, the government should start projects and needs to install those industries which are related to labour intensive.
It is major obstacle in way of economic development. Without its economic development is impossible. Government should adopt labour intensive technologies to remove unemployment and poverty.
