Rules & Regulations
The most important pre-requisite to attract foreign direct investment is to provide a conducive and secure environment with the right resources and incentives. I am extremely happy that due to the efforts of the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Government, we have been able to significantly improve the law and order situation. Khyber Pakhtunkhwa has never been so rightly positioned for the local and foreign investors to benefit from its hardworking and skilled labor, as well as its natural resources. Furthermore, the China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) has presented a plethora of opportunities for investment into various growing sectors. Through the announcement of the first Industrial Policy 2016, we have offered unpresented incentives to investors and that would ultimately spur the process of industrialization in the province on a mass scale. Due to the undeniable impact of industrialization on economic growth, I assure that the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa government will leave no stone unturned to provide its full cooperation and facilitation.
Khyber Pakhtunkhwa has suffered the worst consequences of terrorism over the years, resulting in extremely adverse effects on its economic growth. Now with the success of operation Zarb-e-Azb and return of peace in the province and owing to it’s strategic location on the CPEC, KP is witnessing an upsurge in economic activity and prospects of investments. Sustainable industrial activity is crucial for the economic growth of any region. In this backdrop the important role to be played by the department cannot be over emphasized. The department’s mandate is not only to create an enabling environment for sustainable industrialisation, but also to promote complementing activities like commerce, trade, technical education and vocational training. We are not only endeavouring to provide world class infrastructure and facilities for our existing and new industrial zones, but also trying to ensure availability of adequately trained human resource. KP government was the first province to announce its Industrial Policy in 2016 which has an attractive incentives package which is expected to go a long way in attracting investment to the province. We are also trying to take all necessary measures to prepare for the tremendous opportunities that are likely to arise due to CPEC which would go a long way in turning around the destinies of the people of KP.
