COMPETING GLOBALLY: REGIONALLY COMPETITIVE ENERGY TARIFFS (RCET) FOR EXPORT-ORIENTED ENTERPRISES OF PAKISTAN
This research investigates the multifaceted challenges and intricacies surrounding the implementation of Regionally Competitive Energy Tariffs (RCET) within Pakistan's export sector. In an era marked by increased global competition and a growing need for energy sustainability, understanding the dynamics of energy pricing in export industries is paramount. The research identifies significant hurdles in implementing RCET in Pakistan, including problems with data availability, reliability, and confidentiality. These issues may affect the accuracy of the analysis. Furthermore, it recognizes the dynamic nature of the energy and export sectors, making it challenging to capture changes within a set timeframe. It also offers valuable guidance to policymakers, energy sector stakeholders, and export industry leaders aiming to enhance Pakistan's export competitiveness. It lays the groundwork for future studies, advocating for more profound insights through in-depth interviews and surveys with industry players. Long-term assessments of RCET's impact on Pakistan's export competitiveness are also encouraged.
