ISLAMABAD (APP) - Privatisation Commission has received proposals and estimates regarding issuance of OGDCL bonds from ten big international financial institutions which would be submitted before the Cabinet Committee on Privatization (CCOP) next week. The international financial institutions are: Citibank, JP Morgan, Nomura Investment Inc, UK, Barclays Bank, Morgan Stanley, Goldman Sachs, Credit Suisse, Merrill lynch and others, says a statement issued by the Privatization Commission here on Monday. The Privatization commission in this regard wanted to establish a Book rating consortium.
