Govt should involve but let private sector take leadGov't should not get involved, let the private sector do it, Gov't owned will just turn into another PIA / Steel Mill / PR or similar. However, Pak Gov't should encourage further development by providing incentives for the builders and the merchant companies.
There is Pak National Shipping Corp, it should be encouraged to expand and grow.
PS: Had friends that went to work for 'Gokal Shipping & Trading Co ,' not sure if it's still around after the BCCI scandal, would love to know. I applied to the , 'Fleetwood Merchant Navy College,' outside of Blackpool and was seeking Dry Scholarship through Gokal' a requirement at that time to get admission there. ( My dad was going to pay tuition, ) so no cost to Gokal but they were kind of woshy washy on it as we had no inside track, then I moved to good 'ol USA instead and rest as they say is history.
In the west thr govt always get involves
Where do u think boeing all r&d came from
Create a shipping comapnies by giving incentives if the buy locally and provide cheap working capital
Without govt involvement nothing will happen
