These days, Dar is the darling of IMF and World Bank. The Fund has so far released all eight tranches in time, barring one which was delayed due to the sit-in last year. The World Bank has recently announced a $2 billion package to be disbursed in four years.
Critics are getting harsh over the PML-N governments weakness in instituting substantive economic reforms. The recently-released fifth report on PML-Ns economic agenda by the Islamabad-based think-tank Prime was not kind either (take a cue from its title, "PML-N: Loosing all its marbles"). During the period spanning Jan-Jun 2015, the PML-N governments economic management barely passed with 51 percent score. If Prime were an academy, the series of low scores might have PML-N flunked out by now.
Where OMC sales remained exuberant in FY15, the year FY16 for petroleum product sales took off on a rather depressed note as major petroleum products witnessed a decline in volumes. The key reason for the decline in OMC sales in July 2015 has been the monsoon rains and floods across the country.
The Punjab and Sindh governments have once again announced generous subsidies on tractors - a decision widely hailed by the business and farmer community, alike. The subsidies (Punjabs Rs5 billion for distribution of 25,000 tractors and Sindhs Rs200,000-300,000 per unit on 29,000 tractors) will make tractors more affordable, and will also mean a jump in the top lines of Millat and Al-Ghazi - the national duopoly. Although it appears to be a positive, theres actually a lot more to this than meets the eye.
PML-N claims to be hitting new highs as inflation claims new lows. The year-on-year headline CPI inflation for July 2015 clocked in at 1.8 percent, the lowest number in at least five years. Similarly, the 12-month moving average is also at its lowest at 4.05 percent. On month-on-month basis too, CPI inflation remained below the market consensus of 0.6 percent, registering 0.36 percent.
It is no small feat. Within a year of launch, telcos have migrated nearly 12 percent of their cellular subscriptions onto their expanding 3G networks. It took Indian 3G/4G operators over four years to secure similar transition. From a non-existent base, the quantum of 3G subscribers has swelled to 13.3 million as of June 2015, PTA statistics show. The rise of mobile broadband took overall broadband subscriptions in Pakistan to 16.9 million, up from 3.8 million as of June 2014.
There is a new king in the North; for the countrys cement industry. After successful completion of the acquisition of Lafarge cement, Bestway has emerged as the domestic leader in production capacity. Its four plants: Bestway-Hattar, Bestway-Chakwal, Mustehkam-Hattar and PakCem-Chakwal; collectively boast about eight million tons of cement. Thats 17 percent of total domestic capacity.
