Business environment in Pakistan

Pakistan is a developing market with a young population that offers stable and growing demand. Despite its potential, the country has yet to experience the rapid expansion seen in other Asian markets. This is partly due to a sluggish business environment that has suffered significant deterioration over the past few years. Bureaucracy, poor infrastructure, power shortages, security and corruption are common issues faced by companies doing business in Pakistan.The country does offer up niche opportunities for experienced and patient companies that understand the market and are able to leverage the assistance of local networks.
