Detailed research on every aspect and effort to simplify the steps taken by the government has been the key to their success. They have constantly tried to cement the gap between policymakers and people by understanding the views, issues, and sentiments of the masses. Nevertheless, providing unadulterated information has been their only motive which has helped them to emerge as an unbiased media house. Developing practical thinking about developmental policies and social issues among the youth has been their central objective.

Their contribution to economic development and opportunities shows from the fact that they have successfully run many workshops and seminars on industrial development and economic opportunities across the Asian continent.
On March 1, 2019, Policy Times organized a one-day workshop on ‘Export Promotion & EXIM Policy’ by collaborating with Centre for Trade and Investment Law (CTIL – IIFT), Jamia Millia Islamia, Department of Commerce & Business Studies, EEPC India, and CAPEXIL.

Similarly, on the 14th of November 2018, they associated with Jamia Millia Islamia and Centre for West Asian Studies to organize a seminar to educate students and scholars about the economic opportunities that could be explored in West Asia. Therefore, we can say that apart from providing information on current policies and issues, Policy Times is making an effort to develop a practical mindset among youth when it comes to economic development and policies.
