Position Title:

Communications and Event Management Associate 

General Summary:

Chemonics International is implementing USAID Investment Promotion Activity (IPA), which is a five-year project that is helping to strengthen Pakistan's business enabling environment, build the capacities of Pakistani institutions focused on investment promotion, improve the ecosystem of foreign direct investment (FDI), and increase United States-Pakistan bilateral trade and investment. The project is also helping to remove barriers to investment and trade by facilitating Pakistani-led improvements in government regulations and improving the overall investment climate.

As part of the United States Government's long-term commitment to strengthen Pakistan's economy, IPA is working closely with the Government of Pakistan to streamline its business practices, promote regulatory reforms and competition with an aim to reduce the cost of doing business, and strengthen the investment climate for foreign investors in Pakistan. The project is also promoting opportunities for enhanced trade and investment between American and Pakistani businesses.

Through the IPA Fund, the project is providing grants to firms registered in Pakistan that have a high potential for raising FDI and interested in enhancing trade with the United States. These grants are playing a catalytic role to support the matchmaking of Pakistani firms with investors in the United States and other countries.

By the end of year five, IPA's efforts will result in US $ 25 million leveraged through private sector investments to support US $ 75 million in FDI, US $ 40 million in U.S.-Pakistan trade, and enhanced engagement between U.S. and Pakistani firms.
