The government would take exports to record levels by 2023 by providing a better business environment for the industrial sector in the country, Commerce Adviser Abdul Razak Dawood said on Wednesday.
Addressing the launching ceremony of Seventh Reform Action Plan organised by the Board of Investment (BoI), the adviser to the prime minister said improving Pakistan’s Ease of Doing Business ( EoDB) ranking will boost foreign investment in the country.
“Pakistan’s rise in the last two years from 148 points to 108 points in the World Bank’s EoDB rankings report is a milestone in the growth of foreign investment in the country,” he said.
“One of our main areas is to work on improving the country’s EoBD ranking to provide a better business environment for foreign and local investment in the country. Besides this the government is also committed to decrease the cost of doing business in the country,” he added.
