The Covid-19 pandemic rendered huge impact on the businesses in Pakistan. In the aftermath of Covid-19, the federal Government disbursed Rs 75 billion amongst the industrial workers during the first and second wave of the pandemic whereas the Prime Minister provided relief packages to factories and industries in the electricity and gas bills. The new normal is all about adapting, adjusting and reinvigorating the system. The availability of rapid evidence from businesses could help the government in improving the mechanisms for ease of doing business and enhancing export competitiveness. With regards to the above, we aim to initiate and mainstream the debate on accelerating a mechanism which will lead to making exports more competitive.The broad objectives of the webinar are to:

• Engage Public-Private stakeholders for highlighting importance of export competitiveness
