BOI to Brand Pakistan as an ‘Entrepreneur Future Country’

The Board of Investment (BOI) is considering branding Pakistan as an “Entrepreneur Future Country” by introducing innovations and modern industrial concepts on Special Economic Zones (SEZs) and Priories Economic Zones (PEZs).

“Pakistan offers tremendous opportunities for investors in making investments in various sectors of the economy including Special Economic Zones (SEZs) – under the game changer project of China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) – textile, energy, agriculture, health, education and other sectors due to conducive business environment being offered in the country,” Senior official of BOI told APP here on Tuesday.

He said that the top priority of his organization was to make Pakistan a prime destination for foreign and local investors by providing them level playing fields, besides making pro-investment policies.

The official said,

We will work towards catalyzing investments into priority areas that will fundamentally enable a happier life for its citizens, especially sectors where technology can play a disruptive role, like in education, healthcare, energy and agriculture.

Replying to a question, he said BOI wanted to introduce an aggressive marketing plan for providing facilities offered in SEZs in the shape of one stop shops in order to facilitate ease of doing business in the country.

He said, “Our vision is to promote and enable Pakistan as an attractive investment destination.” He said Pakistan had the opportunity to expedite the development cycle because of technology revolution and entrepreneurship.
