This research is aimed to evaluate the implications of the US-China trade war on Pakistan. In the analysis, we have seen in the impacts that there is no major effect of the Sino-US Trade war on Pakistan but is an opportunity to increase its exports which is a headache for Pakistan. The current account deficit and Balance of payment need good improvement in exports of Pakistan. With many other ways that can work, this needs proper attention from the government to sign FTAs with smaller economies and boost cooperation with them. This should level foreign investment in Pakistan so the country’s dependence on major economies especially Chinese investment and other loans may be decreased.
