Dr Mohammad Faisal, Pakistan’s ambassador to Germany, through a tweet this week announced that Global Furniture Brand ‘IKEA’ is soon commencing its operations in Pakistan. The news was picked up and celebrated by news outlets across the country.

However, Dr Faisal soon deleted the tweet. Moreover, Relevant Authorities in the country, including the Ministry of Industries and Production and Board of Investment, were also unknown to this fact. Similarly, no registration of IKEA has taken place at Securities and Exchange Commission of Pakistan

Earlier, Ambassador to Germany, Dr. Faisal has tweeted “Met Dieter Mettke. He is going to Pakistan to be the in-charge of IKEA operations. We look forward to IKEA opening up stores in major cities of Pakistan”

So far, we can safely say that IKEA has no intention to start operations in Pakistan any time soon as no announcement has been made by the company publicly.
