The report, while quoting the findings of the inter-ministerial committee constituted to assess the cost of war on terror, says that this war not only caused serious damage to the economy but also to the social fabrics of Pakistan as well. The survey report says that at the start of this war, its cost to Pakistan was estimated at $ 2.669 billion in fiscal year 2001-02. The economy experienced enormous direct and indirect costs, which continued to rise from $ 2.669 billion in 2001-02 to $ 13.6 billion by 2009-10, and $ 17.8 billion in the current financial year 2010-11.

The survey says that the onset of the war disrupted Pakistans normal trading activities, as the cost of trading increased substantially because of higher insurance cover. Consequently, economic growth slowed down, demands for imports reduced with decline in tax collection, and inflows of foreign investment were naturally adversely affected, accentuated by the travel bans by Western governments to its entrepreneurs, says the Economic Survey 2010-11. The survey report concludes that the security situation will be the key determinant of the future flow of the investment and Pakistans economy needs an early end to this war.
