But they are from the services sector. This includes telecom, power companies, utilities, retail giants and food companies.
Manufacturing giants and agriculture are largely missing from the list. This is not to say that agriculture or industry have no role or future in Pakistan, far from it, but it does show how the services industry has latched on to the spending boom and catapulted itself to the top of the food-chain, literally.
The bulk of the companies on the list are oil marketing companies. I am not sure what to infer from this. The oil marketing companies here are big because we have a power demand or they are so big and still we have a power shortfall? This should really come as no surprise considering the fact that the services sector is the largest and fastest growing sector in the world economy, accounting for the largest share in total output and employment in most developed countries.

An analysis shows that the share of agriculture has been declining gradually over time from Cross country data reveals that structural transformation of most countries has been multi-stage.
In the first stage of transformation, the decline in the share of the agriculture sector has been seen to be compensated by an almost equal increase in industry, whereas share of services sector has remained stagnant. In the second stage of economic growth, substitution has mostly taken place between industry and services while agriculture has remained constant.
This implies that the services sector has in most cases gained momentum at the expense of agriculture. In case of Pakistan, the share of services is increasing in all sectors of the economy. In fact, the growth rate of services sector is higher than the growth rate of agriculture and the industrial sector and it now accounts for one third of total employment.
It also provides essential inputs to the agriculture sector and the manufacturing sector. It is because of its strong linkages with other sectors of the economy that the growth of the services sector can be taken as an indicator of the strong potential for overall economic growth.
