The Punjab Planning and Development Department and World Bank Group on Saturday in collaboration with Lahore Development Authority (LDA) and Metropolitan Corporation Lahore (MCL) organised a contributor engagement session under the ease of doing business reforms agenda.
The purpose of the session was to engage with the contributors and end-users of the services being provided by MCL and LDA specifically related to issuance of building permits for commercial warehouses. The participants were apprised of the recent initiatives taken by both agencies to reduce time and procedures to facilitate the startups and businesses in Punjab.
The participants appreciated the efforts of the Punjab government for ensuring transparency and curtailing corruption. They were of the view that businesses would benefit greatly from the reforms and would find Punjab an ideal place to do business. The issuance of building permits is taken as one of the key indicators by World Bank Doing Business Report.
