National Mineral Policy 2013

The main challenges the new NMP-2013 seeks to address revolve around the following five broad themes:


  • Increasing the economic contribution of mining sector to Pakistan’s economy through more private investment;
  • Being competitive for scarce and mobile international capital for investment in the mining sector through a stable and enabling environment;
  • Ensuring smooth operational and effective coordination between Federal and Provincial institutions in the implementation of the regulatory and legislative regime for the mining sector;
  • Ensuring that exploration, development and production of Pakistan’s mineral resources are environmentally sustainable; and
  • Encouraging small scale mining and local private participation in the development of the sector.
