As I started this site, I had little knowledge about Official Information Resources for Pakistani Entrepreneurs and Startups. So it was very hard to find updated statistics regarding Pakistan and its economics. Luckily, Govt. of Pakistan is very active in this regard and there are several sites that have published such data and are actively updated. So below I list a few sources and with time I will add more to the list:
http://www.finance.gov.pk : The most important thing that I found here were the economic surverys for the Pakistan.
http://www.pakboi.gov.pk/: Pakistan Board of Investment – Official Site. This site has following important pages:
- Major Industry Sectors of Pakistan
- 5 Key Reasons To Invest In Pakistan
- Pakistan At Glance – A very informative page regarding Pakistan. Contains information that many Pakistanis might not be aware of 🙂
http://www.infopak.gov.pk/: Official Site of Ministry of Information and Broadcasting – it contains links to many other informative sites and official resources.
http://www.secp.gov.pk/: Securities & Exchange Commission of Pakistan is an autonomous regulatory body, administering the corporate laws in the country. The SEC website is a resource to provide general information and eventually specific services to the general public, companies, trade bodies, stock exchanges and other relevant departments / agencies.
