I do not like this own thing even the word, but as a matter of fact the demand in Pakistan has went so high that even large number of imports cannot help, the auto-makers are expanding their plants , even some are now saying to double their production.
Now why demand has went so high, the simple answer is Bank Leasing.... before it the story was different, I do remember the tear 1997, where the showroom guy was offering me 5 thousand rebate on a brand-new mehran.
This own thing is global wherever the demand is high (few cars in the west) but here due to restrictions on imports for many years made these suzukis precious to us.... and they enjoyed selling at the prices set by them, plus this sector was charming for investors as the demand went high and high, so they started investing too.
This is how business is done in Pakistan, corrupt officers wont say anything to auto industry, wont take any measures and they wont let the imported cars in.
Thanks to Mr. Perwaiz Musharaf, he finally has done something with salah mushwara of Shaukat Aziz, I think they dont have shares in auto industry, like mian nawaz sharif and asif zardari.
