  1. When the large local banks should be looking to fight and expand globally, they are instead surrendering their international licenses to focus on the local market only. No wonder that the global products and expertise is fast disappearing from the local market, as more and more international branches are closed off by the HBLs and UBLs. Getting an international license has become a major challenge these days and the days when HBL and UBL can go and start operations in any country they wanted to, are long gone. There is a severe long term cost to the economy associated with these decisions as as such govt of Pakistan should also look into these commercial business decisions.

    • Well it depends if they could make more profit in their local, under-served market, then it makes more sense to consolidate rather than plant flags everywhere.
