During the discourse, Federal Minister Fawad also illuminated the privatisation strategy for the distribution companies (Discos). He detailed a phased approach for Discos’ privatisation, structured on a concession model.

In the inaugural phase, the transfer of management control will be executed, with or without the purchase of shares. The second phase will involve the public offering of additional shares once the stipulated benchmarks are achieved, he said.

Ambassador Galey conveyed France’s strong desire to engage in collaboration and investment in various sectors. He highlighted areas where French enterprises have already made significant inroads, particularly in the automotive and retail sectors.

The meeting embodied the unwavering dedication of Pakistan and France to intensify their strategic partnership and explore new frontiers for economic and cultural exchange.

The consequential meeting was marked by a sincere exchange of appreciation for the enduring bilateral relationship, as well as an in-depth discussion aimed at expanding collaboration in essential sectors, including education, agriculture, and overarching economic cooperation.
