Different parties ruling in different provinces were always going to be interesting experiment; and PTI, the ruling party in KPK has thrown the first stone. Demanding control of the regional electricity distribution company Pesco was taken in good spirit by the Federal Government that raised no qualms. But things are easier said than done.
Amongst the biggest developments that would test the long-term political and economic sagacity of the incumbent government this year would be those happening outside Pakistan.
"Chase your dreams until you catch them...and then dream, catch, and dream again!"--Pakistani equity market seems to be following the same slogan.
The pro-business government is getting its due wrath from various political as well as economic circles; the argument goes that recent policies are biased in the favour of a few business hubs.

All this is giving reasons to many political parties to campaign against the privatization plans charted down by the current regime.

There is no doubt that total bilateral trade has been increasing from $0.83 billion in FY07 to more than $2 billion at present. But, the eyebrow raising factor is the two consecutive year-on-year decline in total trade, from $2.51 billion in FY11 to an estimated $2.38 billion in FY13.
