The Multan Chamber of Commerce and Industry (MCCI ) expressed concern about ‘corporate tax’ as it was a discouraging factor in promoting industrial investment and expansion.

President MCCI Khawaja Jalaluddin Roomi said that if we see corporate tax in various underdeveloped countries it is extremely less than in Pakistan. In Bangladesh the tax is 25%, Vietnam 22%, Singapore 17%, Sri Lanka 15% but in Pakistan, it is 38%, which is shocking. In order to boost exports, the tax should go down to 17 or 18%.

In order to flourish economy, our government should put effort to boost industrial sector of the country because the cost of labor & energy is more in Pakistan in comparison to Bangladesh, India, and Thailand.
