The Punjab Board of Investment & Trade (PBIT) is the trade and investment promotion agency of the province of Punjab, Pakistan. The Government of Punjab, conscious of the importance of investment from the private sector in the development of the provincial economy, established PBIT in 2009.
Since its inception, PBIT steered by a dynamic Board of Directors, has been striving towards achieving the vision of a prosperous Punjab. Although a fairly young organization, PBIT has quickly established its focus around three key objectives: facilitating new and existing businesses; creating a mutually beneficial business environment through proactive policy advocacy both at the provincial and federal level and, promoting Punjab as the ultimate investment destination.
The unique combination of public officials and private sector experts who work at PBIT helps bridge the gap between private corporations and the government. We provide investors and businesses with a one-window facility and reduce their time to market their products. In essence, PBIT acts as a catalyst in harnessing the innate potential of Punjab.
Punjab Board of Investment & Trade is a Steering Committee Member and the Director of South Asia at the World Association of Investment Promotion Agencies (WAIPA) - a prestigious world association of organizations similar to PBIT created by UNCTAD. In its endeavor to put Punjab on the world map, Punjab Board of Investment & Trade has been conducting, and participating in global and local trade and investment events.
