The construction industry in Pakistan is expected to expand by 3% in real terms in 2021, recovering from a decline of 6.2% in 2019. In support of the construction sector and to boost employment and economic output, the Government has announced a construction stimulus package by fixing the tax rate for the construction industry, a subsidy worth PKR30 billion (US$191.5 million). These Incentives will not be able to bear fruits until the law, order situation is improved and complete protection is provided to the stakeholders.
