The Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) Tuesday briefed Chinese Ambassador to Pakistan Yao Jing and Chinese investors about the available tax concessions and exemptions to foreign investors under Pakistani tax laws. Sources told Business Recorder that the Chinese Ambassador to Pakistan Yao Jing and a delegation of Chinese investors met FBR team of tax managers headed by FBR Chairman Mohammad Jehanzeb Khan here at the FBR House on Tuesday.
The FBR side included FBR chairman, member operations and member policy of Inland Revenue and Customs.
Both the sides discussed the importance of China-Pakistan Economic Corridor - a long-term and systematic project to promote economic cooperation through collaboration on Gwadar port, energy, transportation infrastructure and industrial cooperation.
