The rumours were true after all. Yesterday, news broke out of Warid being taken over by Mobilink. Warids sale is finally reaching finality after two and a half year since it was first put up for sale by its sponsor, the Abu Dhabi Group (ADG). Warid had put itself on a strong path by offering LTE services late last year. Its basket of high-end post-paid users would have been an added attraction.
It is increasingly becoming evident that all the recovery is in Ishaq Dars head. Hopefully, the latest export data is damning enough to jolt the dear finance minister back to reality.
The authorities seem to have given in to the pressures of the gas utilities by increasing the limit for Unaccounted for Gas (UFG). The gas consumers should get ready for higher bills come 2016 as the Oil and Gas Regulatory Authority (OGRA) has finally increased the UFG volume in the gas tariffs to seven percent from the existing 4.5 percent.
Banks in Pakistan seem to be ticking all the right boxes. Their profits are up, solvency improved; all profitability indicators are on the up - and all that in times of thin spreads and low interest rate scenario. The State Bank of Pakistan (SBP) in its Quarterly Performance Review of Banking Sector has narrated the obvious.
The per capita water availability in Pakistan is on a steep decline while the population growth is on an upward trajectory. In 1951, the country’s population was 34 million while per capita water availability was 5,260 cubic meters (m3). The situation has adversely changed to per person water availability of 1,032 m3 (2014) today while the country’s inhabitants have crossed 180 million.
The textile industry hasn?t shown any signs of recovery, with exports for the month of October declining nearly 11 percent year-on-year to $1.05 billion. In terms of both quantity exported and dollars earned, every single textile item (except quantity of knitwear and value of readymade garments) declined year-on-year!
Few in this country know that Pakistan Railways runs 38 hospitals, 23 dispensaries, and 24 colleges/schools, according to the logistics experts group at Pakistan Business Council (PBC). That may well be one of the biggest displays of corporate social responsibility ever in this country?s history. Only that the Railways are not a box standard corporation; nor does it have sufficient revenues, let alone profits to support such expenditure.
