Today’s Pakistan is Investor-Friendly for only Mega Projects. It is NOT YET ready for Expatriate Pioneers & Entrepreneurs
Almost daily we read statements of President Musharraf and PM Shaukat Aziz about the government policies of deregulation, liberalization and transparency, which have made Pakistan an attractive and lucrative destination for foreign investors and entrepreneurs.
The present government has successfully embarked on hitherto neglected but badly needed infrastructure-building projects such as national highways, roads, bridges, dams, canals, hotels etc. President Musharraf’s policies have attracted major foreign investment
For these mega projects without which Pakistan cannot embark on the road to success in the 21st century.
Unfortunately these mega projects do not produce long-term jobs in the highly populated and major industrial cities of Pakistan. Even in the USA it is only the small and medium sized pioneering companies starting by entrepreneurs that contribute to job growth or create new jobs. Today’s Pakistan is NOT friendly to Expatriate Pioneers & Entrepreneurs. Only a few simple steps and policy changes can reverse the situation and turn the tap on.
