WASHINGTON - The United States should offer duty-free access to its markets for Pakistani exports, a new report says, declaring that trade might succeed where aid has not in developing a vibrant economy and stable partner.

The report by a study group convened by the Center for Global Development, an independent think-tank, was sharply critical of Washington's attempts to stabilize Pakistan with billions in economic aid, saying they were not delivering the desired results.

"The United States is way off course in Pakistan," said Nancy Birdsall, the center's president and report's lead author.
