The Min­istry of Com­merce and In­dus­try (MoCI) said that the num­ber of electronic trans­ac­tions done through In­vest Easy por­tal in 2018 reached 320,811, a mas­sive in­crease of over 137,333 from 2017.

The trans­ac­tions con­sisted of new regis­tra­tions, re­newals, mod­i­fi­ca­tions, can­cel­la­tions and ad­di­tion of ac­tiv­i­ties and changes in com­mer­cial names, com­mer­cial and per­sonal im­port per­mits, cer­tifi­cates of ori­gin and com­mer­cial agen­cies.

The in­crease in the num­ber of trans­ac­tions was due to investors’ in­ter­est in us­ing per- sonal electronic ser­vices. The electronic por­tal has helped in the speedy pro­cess­ing of ap­pli­ca­tions. It has clar­ity in the pro­ce­dures and saves time and ef­fort.
