Pakitan’s much-awaited very first E-Commerce policy is finally approved by the cabinet. This policy was first introduced three years ago. The previous govt didn’t pay attention to the most emerging market in the country. Hence, the file was waiting to be considered for around three years. This time, Prime Minister and company pay attention to E-Commerce Industry and carry out the file and presented it in the cabinet meeting. And finally, Pakistan’s E-Commerce Policy is approved by the federal cabinet.
Benefits Of Pakistan E-Commerce Policy
There are numerous benefits of this policy. The E-Commerce industry of the country will be regulated. The industry will flourish over time because the govt is paying attention to digital businesses. Moreover, the country’s economy will also grow because govt will take tax from big e-commerce giants like Daraz. The biggest benefit of Pakistan’s E-Commerce Policy is that Govt is thinking to create a universal payment gateway to send or receive payments. This payment gateway will be approved by the State Bank of Pakistan. Anyone will be able to send or receive payments locally as well as internationally.
