Firms and growth seminar

State Bank of Pakistan (SBP), IGC Pakistan and the Pakistan Business Council (PBC) are jointly hosting a day-long seminar on firms and their potential for growth with support from the Consortium for Development Policy Research (CDPR).

The seminar will support engagement with the key stakeholders by bringing together senior policymakers from the Federal Government and the State Bank, including the governor of the central bank, heads of the key bilateral donor organisations, and federal and provincial ministers and bureaucrats, along with key economic researchers and practitioners.

The sessions are divided to explore the following questions:

  • How can moving to an outward-looking economy generate higher economic growth?
  • How can the macroeconomic environment be improved to tap into higher revenue streams from industry, attract higher FDI and foster better bilateral trade arrangements, particular with China?
  • How can winner sectors be nurtured to unleash higher and sustained growth?
  • What are the factors constraining the SME sector and how can they be tackled?

When: 9:30 AM – 5:00 PM (SAST), Monday, 13 January 2020

Where: Learning Resource Centre, State Bank of Pakistan, Karachi
