ISLAMABAD: Adviser to PM on Commerce, Textile, Industry and Investment Abdul Razak Dawood on Wednesday said Prime Minister Imran Khan has ordered improvement in Pakistan’s ease of doing business ranking.
Addressing a news conference in Islamabad alongside Board of Investment (BOI) Chairman Haroon Sharif, Dawood said, “Pakistan is currently ranked 136 among 190 economies in the ease of doing business and the prime minister has given us the target to improve it to 100 in the current year.”
The government plans to establish dedicated Ease of Doing Business Centers in the federal capital and all four provinces in the next three months to fully facilitate entrepreneurs to make investments in the country, he added.
“Our efforts are focused on improving the ranking of the country in terms of doing business,” the premier’s adviser said.
“We are bringing a promissory note for exporters in order to address their liquidity issue. Our effort is that tax refunds do not pile up in the future,” he continued. “The process of industrialisation has been started in the country which will create immense job opportunities for the youth.”
