CCOP meets under Chairmanship of Ishaq Dar decides not to go ahead with the sale of OGDCL shares;                                

The CCOP at this juncture unanimously decided not to go ahead with the deal and said this decision clearly proves that divestment of OGDCL shares was not being undertaken under any IMF pressure and that future plan for the proposed sale would be chalked out whenever considered appropriate;                                

We are not going to change the structure of the company, not management and not going to sack any of the employees of the company so it should not be termed a privatisation of the company says Minister for State Muhammad Zubair;                                

Finance Minister said that the recently completed successful transactions of shares in UBL and PPL have resulted in enhancing investors’ confidence in the reform policies of the government. He emphasized that during the whole process Privatization Commission will have to maintain transparency and fairness at all levels of the transaction. He added that there will be no compromise on two basic principles; transparency and fair price for the transaction. He stressed that no GOP share will be sold for less. He added that, we should strive for maximizing participation from both foreign and domestic investors and fetch in the best price possible for our country;

Prime Minister has said that the transaction has been a mega success, far better than any such transaction in our capital market history and it has broken all previous records;

Privatisation is an important policy tool for generating growth and addressing structural imbalances by removing artificial barriers and opening up the economy to competition. Privatisation program is part of the economic reforms agenda of the Government that along with deregulation, restructuring and good governance seeks to enhance growth and productivity in the economy by harnessing the private sector’s capital and managerial potential as engine of growth and gradually decreasing Government’s role to providing level playing field and favourable business climate.
