[QUOTE=RANA AAA;144487757]Emirates, Etihad Airways showed interest in buying PIA stake’



KARACHI:
Emirates and Etihad Airways showed interest in buying a stake in Pakistan International Airlines (PIA), but the government was forced to retreat from its sell-off agenda as protests kicked off, said a top official privy to privatisation developments.

After earning a substantial $1.72 billion under its ambitious privatisation plan in the first two years, the PML-N’s sell-off programme stalled in the latter half of its tenure. The tactical retreat came as protests erupted after it was reported that the government was considering selling its stake in the national carrier.

“The Privatisation Commission found potential strategic buyers for two top loss-making state-owned entities; PIA and Pakistan Steel Mills,” an official told The Express Tribune on )













No secret about it...The sad thing is that they are still interested, along with some Chinese and Turkish business groups...Curses on the government. ..

Vah jee vah...the government was forced to retreat because of protests? If a dharna in Islamabad 3 years ago couldn't stop them, what are a couple of PIA cabin crew employees going to do? Drama...nothing else.

Sell PIA ASAP.

I guess there is only 4-5 months max left in Govt term and they can take an unpopular decision for the sake of country. But IMO can't see it happening with all these political judges who will not let it happen.

Details of Pia PRIVATISATION PROCESS SOUGHT

LAHORE - The Lahore High Court on Thursday heard a petition against proposed privatisation of the Pakistan International Airline (PIA) and directed the petitioner to provide information about the process for privatisation of government institutions.

Advocate Nabeel Javed Kahloon had filed the petition, alleging that the government had decided to privatise the national carrier and was going to sell it out to a company of its choice. He alleged that Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi who also owns a private airline in the country, has vested interest in privatisation of PIA . Referring to previously sold institutions like Pakistan Steel Mills and Pakistan Telecommunication Limited (PTCL), the counsel submitted that privatisation of the state-owned institutions had caused a great loss to the country and the proposed privatisation of PIA will further the same. He prayed to the court to stop the federal government from selling out national career as it will hit the larger national interest.

The court of Justice Shahid Mobeen adjourned the further hearing till January 25 and told the petitioner to come up with detailed information about the procedure and steps relating to privatisation of a public institution.
