Despite challenging circumstances, our business community is continuing its business with great diligence and working day and night to increase country’s exports. Dr. Alvi said that thanks to your hard work that Pakistan’s exports have crossed $ 31 billion dollar mark in FY22.  Dr. Arif Alvi said that I am happy that FPCCI is an institution which has been playing its role for promotion of exports of Pakistan unrelentingly for decades and, connecting Pakistan’s business community through its platform.

He congratulated all 45th Export Award Trophy of FPCCI winners. President Dr. Arif distributed awards for best performance among top exporters this year.

He added that as Afghanistan begins process of reconstruction, Pakistan must be ready to derive economic benefits.

He maintained that there is an enormous potential to better capitalise on benefits of CPEC. FPCCI and Pakistan’s business community will help government meet taxation targets. He said that there was an urgent need to address issues of industry and trade and provide a conducive environment for businesses.  Mian Anjum Nisar said that despite all difficulties, exporters are working hard for development of country. Due to increase in cost of doing business in China, it has become very difficult to do business there. If government facilitates reduction of cost of doing business, then companies from many countries including China will invest in Pakistan and economy will be much better placed, he added.
