Pakistan, located in South Asia, is the world's fifth most populous country. The country's eastern border is with India, its northern border is with China, its western border is with Iran, and its northern border is with Afghanistan.

Because of a rapidly growing population, political differences, and multi-tiered foreign investment, the nation's economy has always experienced ups and downs. The administration intends to implement a variety of plans to attract foreign investment and create a variety of job opportunities.

4. Cost of living in Pakistan

Pakistan's cost of living is $294, which is 3.17 times less expensive than the global average. Pakistan ranked 197th out of 197 countries in terms of cost of living and 120th in terms of quality of life.

The Pakistani government forecasts a 5% future growth rate, which is one of the highest in Southern Asia. Pakistan's poverty rate increased to 5% in 2020, up from 2.3% in 2018. The COVID-19 pandemic is one of the primary causes of the country's economic decline.

As the Pakistan Rupee depreciates year after year, the PPP, or purchasing power parity, is nearly 1 trillion USD. The depreciation of the Pakistan Rupee will make the country an attractive destination for foreign investment, as iconic brands will be eager to pay employees lower wages.

The government is very interested in raising the standards of the EV, Biomedical, Electromagnetic, and Semiconductor industries. Apart from Lahore and Karachi, Pakistan's new emerging PDC or Pakistan Digital City "Haripur" is rapidly developing as Samsung and Realme launch their manufacturing lines in the country.

According to a World Bank and International Finance Corporation report, Pakistan is ranked 108th out of 190 countries for ease of doing business. Because doing business in the country is simple, most automakers, including Renault, Hyundai, Kia, and Volkswagen, intend to expand there.

After a 30-year hiatus, Exxon Mobil, America's largest oil and gas drilling company, has restarted an offshore drilling project in Pakistan.

Some developed countries, such as Qatar, have pledged to invest 3 billion USD in direct investments to boost foreign-exchange reserves.
