Export Dialog: Pakistan

Opportunities in a challenging market

ExD: Pakistan
Wazir Khan Mosque, Lahore, Pakistan

In a recent Goldman Sachs research paper, economist Jim O'Neill has named Pakistan amongst one of the next eleven countries having a high potential of becoming part of the world's largest economies in the 21st century. This assumption is based on the promising outlooks for investment and future growth, stability, economic liberalization and privatization of public sector corporations. Pakistan has a population of 200 million people, the advantage of a demographic dividend (median age 24 years) and a steadily rising middle class. In 2017 Pakistan projects a GDP growth rate of better than 5%, which is expected to rise steadily in the coming years.

Pakistan is a country on the move. It is home to some of the largest infrastructure projects in the world and also provides abundant opportunities for small and medium sized companies, including a first-mover advantage in many industries and sectors. At the Export Dialogue Pakistan, you will hear from several Swiss SMEs who have successfully entered the market and created sustainable and profitable businesses. You will also have an opportunity to tour the facility of Glas Trösch AG FIRESWISS, one of the leading producers world-wide of specialty glass. Please see below for details.

Glas Trösch AG FIRESWISS, Switzerland Global Enterprise, the Chamber of Industry and Commerce of Central Switzerland and the Swiss Business Council of Pakistan will be delighted to welcoming you to this free of charge export dialog.
