The article considers the impact of the Finance Act of 2006 established by the Pakistan government on the chemical industry. The Pakistan chemical industry received a boost after the government decided to hike tariffs to fend off foreign competition. The legislation will empower tax authorities to provide protection by imposing an additional customs duty on chemical imports.
