The GoP welcomes foreign investments and offers incentives to attract new capital inflows. These incentives include tax exemptions, tariffs reductions, infrastructure, and investor facilitation services in designated special economic zones. Since 1997, Pakistan has established and maintained a largely open investment regime. The PML-N government introduced the Investment Policy 2013 that further liberalizes investment policies in most sectors. In addition to expressing concern about the deteriorating law and order situation, foreign investors continue to advocate for the Government of Pakistan to improve legal protections for foreign investments, protect intellectual property rights, and establish a clear and consistent policy of upholding contractual obligations and settlement of tax disputes.
