The Government of Pakistan (GOP) aims to sustain a high economic
growth. A major constraint to further growth in Pakistan is the shortage
of viable and facilitating infrastructure. In consolidating our growth
trend the role of private sector investment is vital for the development
of an efficient and well integrated transport system that will
facilitate a competitive economy and poverty reduction. The GOP is very
rightly trying to put the road infrastructure commensurate with
requirement of the country as well as the region. It is undoubtedly the
most critical activity at present moment and the country needs to get
equipped with the upgraded road infrastructure in the next five to seven
The GOP has set an ambitious road development portfolio and fiscal
budget allocations alone would be sufficient to meet almost 50% of the
set target demands, the rest has to come from Off-Budget Financing
through Public Private Partnership (PPP).
