The banks in Pakistan may not be lending to anyone and everyone, but they sure are leveraging their general banking operations. This is apparent in SBPs half yearly review of payment systems in Pakistan, which shows another six months of acceleration in retail payments and transactions in the banking system.
As soon as the Federal Petroleum Minister Dr. Asim Hussain went on air on Thursday and announced, what should have come as news to none; the fact that Pakistan faces a dire emergency in terms of supplies of natural gas, television channels went into over drive extolling the hardships that would be faced by the nation as a consequence of this shortage.
In treasury auctions, where investors behaviour is driven by market liquidity position and future macroeconomic directions, there is a normal ebb and flow.

Cotton business stakeholders headed in to a meeting with government officials on Wednesday to lobby for the imposition of a support price for cotton through the Trading Corporation of Pakistan. The businessmen, predominantly ginners, argue that falling rates of the commodity in local and international markets are threatening the livelihoods of growers in the country.

The National Fertilizer Development Centre released the fertiliser statistics for November 2011 and the picture painted is far from satisfactory. Urea off-take for the month has fallen by 30 percent of the 5-year average off-take for November. The skyrocketing prices of urea in the wake of gas curtailment have certainly caught up with the farmers, which is why buying remained dull in a month where it has traditionally been on the higher side.
