Best Place to Do Business
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.”
