Pakistan’s focus on improving the business environment through a range of reforms aimed at domestic and international businesses has recently seen its ranking in the World Bank’s Doing Business Guide improve by a significant 28 points in one year. The government continues to implement reforms aimed at improving the ease of doing business in the country, and promoting Pakistan as a top investment destination in the region.
Pakistan has significant market potential for international investors, especially in the areas of oil and gas, power and renewable energy, transport infrastructure, communications, energy, and automobile manufacturing.
Located in the north-western part of the south Asian subcontinent, bordering India, China, Afghanistan and Iran, Pakistan plays an important role in the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor and is regarded an important Belt & Road destination. It has also seen participation from various multilateral development and export credit agencies which are working with the private sector and government to address the country’s (and broader region’s) infrastructure gap.
