Abstract


This study explors the assistance of government institutions
through technical capacity-building and financial assistance toward global expansion of Pakistani companies in different sectors. Many companies globalize their operations to enhance their export trade share in the world market. In Pakistan, Ministry of Commerce (MoC) and Trade Development Authority of Pakistan (TDAP) uphold them in various ways. This exploratory probe employs interviews from MoC and TDAP. The feedback is cross checked from globally operating/ expanding companies from top-five export sectors in Pakistan including textile, leather, rice, seafood, and wheat. The findings indicate that the role of public bodies remains limited and undermined.
