Apart from the opportunities, elections sometimes bring challenges for business growth. Here are the points-

Change in Power – A Challenge for the Business Community

Jiggling policies – The trust of the business community depends upon the stability of the government, with a change in power, the trust starts disappearing like melting ice.

Social Unrest – Contentious elections resulting in protests and disruptions of public property. This emerges as an unsafe environment for the business community and their employees, for instance, Chinese employees deployed for the CPEC corridor.

Global trade uncertainties – Leadership changes may affect the trade agreements and alliances, for instance, the withdrawal of GSP status given to developing nations by the US president.

Changes in Tax regimes – A new government sometimes changes the whole tax structure to fulfil its campaign promise.

In a changing power scenario of a country, it becomes crucial for the business community to go through a proper analysis of the business environment. So, businesses can foster growth and innovation with market confidence.
