Best Place to Do Busi­ness

Slogan - - Newsbeat -

Pak­istan has tied with Canada, Aus­tralia and Fin­land at num­ber 1 po­si­tion as one of the best places to make a liv­ing, ac­cord­ing to Forbes magazine. Gov­ern­ment sup­port and ac­cess to non-fi­nan­cial as­sis­tance in Pak­istan lags be­hind most coun­tries. How­ever, Pak­istan scores ex­cep­tion­ally high for women in lead­er­ship po­si­tions and ease of ac­cess­ing in­vest­ment. The US is now at 32nd po­si­tion, the num­ber that was oc­cu­pied by Pak­istan ear­lier.

Writes Forbes, “Pak­istan de­spite hav­ing lim­ited gov­ern­ment sup­port and be­ing dif­fi­cult to sell to busi­nesses and gov­ern­ment agen­cies still com­mands #1 for earn­ing a liv­ing. The na­tion’s come­back in this cat­e­gory is a re­mark­able feat given the coun­try was ranked #30 in 2016. The im­prove­ment of live­able in­come may be be­cause Pak­istan has be­come a more open mar­ket for do-good com­pa­nies to sell to the gen­eral pub­lic.”
