Pakistan has moved up 11 notches in World Bank’s ‘Doing Business’ report. Starting off a business in Pakistan has been made easier by introducing the online registration system and replacing unnecessary paperwork. Registration of property has also become easier. There are several contributors behind these positive changes, but one deserves a special mention: REDAP.
