The Investment Promotion Activity (IPA) project is a five-year USAID program implemented by Chemonics International in Pakistan. The goal of the IPA 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 project activities, IPA requires the services of an event management and investor engagement firm to implement IPA’s Pakistan Investment Roadshow scheduled to be held in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia on March 3, 2024. The purpose of this RFQ is to solicit quotations for the requirements listed in Annex- A.
