Foreign Direct Investment in Pakistan: Policy Issues and Operational Implications

A.H. Khan and Y.-H. Kim

Papers from Asian Development Bank

Abstract: Given its fragile balance of payments position and urgent need to boost industrial production, Pakistan needs to significantly increase its mobilization of foreign resources. However, long-term official assistance will become increasingly scarce, while promoting large portfolio investments is not a proper market policy option due to Pakistan's underdevloped and narrow capital market. Significant increases in commercial borrowings are also not desirable. It is therefore crucial to accord high priority to foreign direct investment (FDI).
