Abstract: Pakistan’s exports have stagnated since 2013 after growing significantly during the previous decade. While many other factors have undoubtedly contributed, the evidence outlined in this paper indicates that the substantial increase in overall protection, driven by incidence of non-tariff measures, has had a major and decisive impact.
