British businesses have been encouraged to invest in Pakistan as part of an ongoing program of events run by the UK government to highlight new opportunities.
As per details, the webinar titled ‘Doing Business in Pakistan’ was held on April 29, 2021. It brought together three exceptional panelists who have welcomed the support offered by the UK’s Department for International Trade.
“Pakistan is an exciting market that provides lots of potential for the UK. We have almost 200 UK firms doing business in Pakistan, and this number is growing every year,” said Olivia Campbell, the UK’s Deputy Director for Trade in Pakistan and Chair of the Panel.
“By sharing the experience of UK businesses that have had success in this market, we want to encourage more British firms to consider Pakistan as their partner of choice,” Campbell added.
The webinar ended with a Q&A session discussing the challenges one faces to enter the Pakistani market and all the DIT support available to counter these.
UK Export Finance has increased its available support for exports to Pakistan to £1.5 billion. This will give additional capacity to help UK exporters win, fulfill, and get paid for export contracts, and to help Pakistan’s buyers access to finance to source high-quality UK goods and services.
