Overview

Burgeoning infrastructure development across Pakistan offers significant business opportunities for Australian businesses.

To that end, Austrade is organising a free webinar to share insights on various planned infrastructure projects, including opportunities that might arise in Sindh and Punjab provinces from the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) project, and to discuss the changing economic landscape of Pakistan.

Much of the infrastructure development proposed in Pakistan is being propelled by significant foreign investment, targeted at rapidly modernising Pakistani infrastructure, transportation networks, energy projects, and special economic zones.

Australian companies in the engineering, construction, infrastructure and related service industries particularly those operating in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) are strategically placed to consider the opportunities in Pakistan.
