Until recently, Pakistan's telecommunication and media sectors were closely regulated. However, the liberalisation of these sectors has attracted billions of dollars in capital investment and international companies like Telenor, Malaysia Telecom and China Telecom have recently entered the telecommunication market. Pakistan allows full foreign ownership of telecommunication businesses and places no restrictions on repatriation of profits and dividends. The telecommunication sector in Pakistan is regulated by the Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA).
Pakistanís media sector was dominated by the state-owned media producer and broadcaster, Pakistan Television Corporation and Radio Pakistan until 2001. There was limited private sector participation in broadcast TV and radio. New television broadcast TV channels and FM radio stations have experienced an explosive growth during the past five years with a choice of over 50 national and regional TV channels now available to Pakistani viewers and a wide variety of FM radio stations broadcasting on a nationwide basis. The electronic media is regulated by the Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority (PEMRA).
