PUBLIC SECTOR SHOULD FOLLOW PSO'S EXAMPLE: GEN SABAHAT
Major General Syed Sabahat Hussain last week
observed that if Pakistan State Oil is so successful, why could other
public sector companies not follow its example.
The Chief Instructor of the National Defence
College (NDC), who led a team of 95 senior officers of three wings of
armed forces to the PSO House, was speaking following a presentation
on the blue-chip company made by its Managing Director, Mr Tariq
Gen Sabahat said that PSO was selected for two
reasons for the visit of the prestigious War Course participants.
First, oil is important and the country is dependent on oil imports.
He said the second reason why PSO was selected was that it was one of
the few companies that were a success story.
"We wanted to find out the reasons for the
success," he said. "Now we stand enlightened and educated
following Mr Kirmani's presentation."
The General said that he was now reassured, as an
army man and a Pakistani, in PSO's capabilities and the potential that
this country had.
Earlier, the Managing Director explained in detail
the reforms and initiatives taken by the Ministry of Petroleum and
said it was one ministry that had stood out in its performance.
He said that PSO's vision was to be the market
leader and be the lowest-cost supplier with assured access to
long-term supplies. He explained the strategic management initiatives
taken by the company and added that PSO was the first OMC in Pakistan
to enter e-business by introducing plastic technology through Loyalty
Card, Fleet Card and Corporate Cards.
He pointed out that commitment to professional
excellence was such that despite the unfortunate incident near the PSO
House, which shattered some part of the facade, no damage could be
seen by the visitors as repair had been made overnight.
At the end of the presentation, Gen Sabahat and Mr Kirmani
