Pakistan Business Environment Reform Vision
The Government of Pakistan aims to improve the quality of regulatory environment and promote private investment across the country. As a result of recent business climate reforms, Pakistan’s ranking in the World Bank Group’s Doing Business Report 2020 has improved by 28 points from 136 to 108 out of 190 economies.
Since its inception in 2002, The World Bank Group’s Doing Business project has followed a data-driven approach to measure improvements in business environment and the regulatory service delivery across 190 economies.
The Government of Pakistan’s commitment to improving the business environment is further manifested in the introduction of Pakistan Regulatory Modernization Initiative, a second-generation regulatory reform effort, which builds on the progress of doing business reforms in the country. It aims to simplify and automate compliance with business regulation in line with Prime Minister’s vision to transform Pakistan as a top investment destination in the region to start and operate businesses.
The Board of Investment at the Prime Minister’s Office is the lead agency for coordinating the implementation of business environment reforms across Pakistan.
