APNS withdraws decision on govt ads

Pakistan Press Foundation

THE All Pakistan Newspaper Society has decided to withdraw its decision to suspend publication of government advertisements to press for payment of Rs1.6 billion arrears for the 2008-2012 period.

The APNS said in a press release that it had taken the decision as a gesture of support for the new government which it hoped would reciprocate positively and help the newspaper industry overcome the financial problems caused by non-payment of the outstanding dues by the federal government.

It requested the incoming government to hold a meeting with the APNS soon after assuming office.The society has called upon all member publications to accept ads released by federal ministries, departments and autonomous and semi-autonomous bodies.
