Let (A, m) be an excellent normal domain of dimension two. We deﬁne an m-primary ideal I to be a pg -ideal if the Rees algebra A[It] is a Cohen-Macaulay normal domain. If A has inﬁnite residue ﬁeld then it follows from a result of Rees that the product of two pg ideals is pg . When A contains an algebraically closed ﬁeld k ∼= A/m then Okuma, Watanabe and Yoshida proved that A has pg -ideals and furthermore product of two pg -ideals is a pg ideal. In this article we show that if A is an excellent normal domain of dimension two containing a ﬁeld k ∼= A/m of characteristic zero then also A has pg -ideals.
