THE EXPORT POTENTIAL

Though the total exports of Pakistan stood at $14.40 billion in fiscal year 2004-05, yet 63 per cent exports were confined to only 10 countries, which calls for accelerating efforts to target potential buyers and new markets especially in the face of free market access around the globe.
It is worth mentioning that Pakistan's exports to 10 countries exceeded nine billion dollars mark for the first time and settled at 9.11 billion dollars in last financial year that means the remaining $5 billion export earnings were fetched from rest of the countries.


  SSGCL, SNGPL

The Oil Companies Advisory Committee (OCAC) has once again raised price of petrol by Rs3.68 increasing the motor gasoline price from Rs52.61 to Rs56.29 per litre.
Increase in the prices of imported petroleum products seems justified in the backdrop of rocketing oil prices in the international market, yet there would probably be no rationale for increasing the petrol prices specially when the total requirement of the motor gasoline is met through domestic production and no import is involved in this category of petroleum products.
The rocketing oil prices may be a blessing in disguise for the two natural gas marketing companies -SSGCL & SNGPL-as they are paving the way for them as future energy leaders in Pakistan.
