Competition is a vital component for any vibrant market and economy and without competition growth and productivity is like chasing a wild goose. Unfortunately, the economy of Pakistan is in doldrums and there are various reasons behind this weak state of economy. Businesses in our country are not thriving. There is an acute shortage of investment. The lack of trust deficit of investors and the market make the situation most gruesome. In order to highlight these problems, PIDE arranged a series of webinars to discuss the prevailing problems in the market competitiveness in the country.
