Political economy analysis at the sector level can be useful in helping to explain why some sectors have struggled to move from low value added to higher value added exports. This project enabled FCDO Pakistan’s Economic Growth Group to better understand the political economy of Pakistan’s private sector, specifically a range of priority sub-sectors that are exporting or have the potential to, with respect to the ownership interests of the ‘elite’. The CDPR team undertook the scope of drafting the analysis report and accompanying economic sector profiles to support the transformation of the real economy underlined by boosting exports and employment and reducing inequality.
This study was funded by the FCDO (2020).
