    Thumbs up Yamaha to invest $150million in Pakistan

    This is the latest and confirmed news. I heard the news on GEO and also came across this LINK

    I see it as a prologue to an entirely new era in "motor biking" in Pakistan. For the first time Yamaha will locally manufacture bike from 125 to 150cc range, plus the bikes will be featured with EFi technology.

    Lets hope they bring something according to the desires of the biker's community.

    bro all im trying to say here is if Yamaha does enter the market, it won't be good for the vendor industry. i tell you how, they wont be able to invest heavily into the technology that Yamaha wants in order for it to produce motorcycles. second of all Yamaha isnt being fair. they want reduced duties on CBU's, which points out that they want to just assemble the motorcycle and sell it for 5 to 10 years. with this they'll be gaining on profits and the other players will be effected. i want yamaha to come in the market and do their own thing, and progress the motorcycle market, but with no effects to other players, or to the dependable millions of people running their houses.

    There is no chance of brand new 150cc efi yamaha bike with a price tag of 40,000 so how would they affect the market of locally produced suzuki or china bikes, don't expect such bikes under 1 lac, but the monopoly of honda would break as yamaha surely would introduce much newer and advanced bike in Rs.116,000 compared to honda deluxe.

    Attracting investors: Zardari signs SEZ Bill 2012


    "A consensus law had been passed to ensure continuity of economic and investment policy," says President Zardari. PHOTO:FILE

    ISLAMABAD: President Asif Ali Zardari on Monday accorded his assent to The Special Economic Zones Bill 2012 at a signing ceremony held here, putting in place a legal and regulatory framework for creation, development and efficient operation of SEZs and to encourage domestic and international investors.

    Speaking on the occasion, the president said one of the major reasons for economic backwardness of the country had been frequent reversal of economic and investment policies with change of governments for political reasons.
    This was for the first time, he said, that a consensus law had been passed to ensure continuity of economic and investment policy and it would no longer be possible to change the policy without changing the law.

    Motorcycle industry :
    New entrant policy termed ‘disaster’

    Staff Report

    ISLAMABAD: Pakistan’s motorcycle industry here on Monday termed new entrant policy for new motorcycle manufacturers as a disaster for the existing industry and warned that this would result in promoting organised sector into an unorganised sector.

    The representatives of the motorcycle industry informed a selected group of reporters that the new entrant policy is being formulated to benefit one new manufacturing company, which intends to manufacture motorcycles above 100cc.

    The representatives of the industry were of the view that the policy would not benefit the company being rewarded at the cost of the existing industry as it would only hurt the expansion in the existing industry. They were of the view that at a time when motorcycles are being sold at $110 to $1,200 in other countries, due to localisation of parts in Pakistan motorcycles are being sold at less than $500. Localisation has benefited the consumers in Pakistan and new entrant policy will promote imports and would have a very negative impact on localisation efforts being made by the existing industry. The country would turn into a trading hub if the proposed policy is approved and implemented as local players would prefer importing motor cycles rather than manufacturing them locally.

    The proposed import tariff for new entrants has been proposed at 5.0 percent against the 65 percent for others who would be importing motorcycles in Completely Built Unit (CBU) condition.

    They feared that existing manufacturers of motorcycles would get themselves as new entrants and would like to benefit from import tariff incentives proposed in the policy and local vender industry, which has already achieved localisation up to 93 percent in 70cc would get hurt badly along with loss of thousands of job opportunities in the country.

    ECC meeting postponed | Business Recorder

    ECC meeting postponed



    September 27, 2012
    WASIM IQBAL




    <saqib></saqib>


    The meeting of the Economic Co-ordination Committee of the Cabinet was postponed which was earlier scheduled for today (Thursday), sources said. Seven items were on the agenda of the upcoming meeting of ECC. Apart from reviewing the performance of key economic indicators and implementation of decisions taken by the ECC of the Cabinet, the forum was expected to take other important economic decisions.

    Ministry of Commerce was expected to propose to the ECC that new entrants in the motorcycle industry should be allowed to start production with 25 percent locally manufactured parts and be required to achieve 85 percent localisation after five years. General tariff reduction was proposed for the protection to motorcycle industry in Pakistan with 'new entrant policy' including bringing import duty on import of sub-assemblies from 20 percent to 10 percent, import of Completely Built Units (CBU) and components for assembly or manufacture of vehicles in any kit form from 65 percent to 10 percent, Completely Knocked Down (CKD) kits not manufactured locally from 15 percent to 5.0 percent, and CKD kits manufactured locally from 47.5 percent to 25 percent. However, import duty on import of raw materials is proposed to be maintained at zero percent and sub-components and components at 5.0 percent.

    The new entrant policy for motorcycle industry will be applicable on motorcycles of 100cc and above with new technology for new entrants; the concessionary rate of duty for CKD kits is proposed to be 5.0 percent at the start of commercial production, and localisation level be kept at a minimum of 25 percent. By the end of five years localisation level be allowed to reach a minimum of 85 percent and the agreement template for new entrants, including the localisation plan, be developed by Engineering Development Board in consultation with National Tariff Commission. The agreement would be designed in such a way that new entrant scheme is not misused. Non-implementation of localisation plan should result in the imposition of prevalent duties.

    Ministry of Petroleum and Natural Resources has also moved a summary for import of Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG). Amendment in Oil and Gas Regulatory Authority (OGRA) rules has been proposed to facilitate import of LNG. The ECC will likely consider a summary moved by Production Division regarding renewal of Government of Pakistan guarantee of Rs 2 billion for Pakistan Steel Mills. The PSM has yet to receive Rs 2 billion from the Finance Ministry despite the orders of Prime Minister Raja Pervez Ashraf during his visit to the Mills on August 10.

    Water and Power Division has also moved a summary for consideration of ECC which requires that the Government of Pakistan should provide an indemnity for implementation of Hydropower projects. Permission to release latex foam imported from India by Shafi Lifestyle (pvt) Limited, Lahore will also likely be discussed in meeting.

    A LINK : Food For thought ( the small china 70 makers / 125 copiers are not the bigger problem , mainly it is the Big MAGAR MUCH monopolist not going to name it because that will ignite a stupid arguments from haters )

    Why Yamaha Japan's plan to build latest bikes in Pakistan still lingers on | PakWheels Blog


    This is what article has to say about it :

    "It has said that Yamaha Japan will only make models which have never been build in Pakistan before which means that we would finally get rid off the 3-4 decades old CD70 and CG125 motorcycles and come to par with the rest of the world but PAAPAM doesn’t want that."

    "Local automotive assemblers are trying to block Yamaha’s investment in Pakistan so they can continue selling atleast four decades old design motorcycles built with obsolete technology to Pakistanis for the foreseeable future effortlessly. As Yamaha aims to introduce bikes built with today’s technology and design. "

    [guess who is bribing PAAPAM for that other the Mr 10% off course you got that right the makers of CG *** ]


    and by the way to block Yamaha Chinese copiers and magar-much are teamed up against Yamaha and trying there best to make it fail heres another one :

    PAMA seeks to block Yamaha

    They dont need to ban these companies, They should allow Yamaha and other brands and let them introduce new models for Pakistani people, after that current looters will feel the pinch. they will either shut down or come with some new and exciting models.

    Atleast Yamaha has guts to invest in pakistan
    its an big risk for them considering pakistan's motorcycle's history
    First big question mark is will people accept those latest bikes?
    as they are claiming to built international standard latest bikes here

    10% & 20% is not main concern of AHL & Chonda manufactures
    the main problem or headache for them is this claim of Yamaha (manufacturing latest bikes)
    This will seriously hurt AHL & other Chonda
    as they are earning alot of money from these years old motorcycles

    100% agreed! It will dramatically improve the quality of service AHL, Pak Suzuki are giving, because they will realize first they were only competing with Chinese low end manufactures, but now there is some real competitor in the ring, and it will benefit Pakistani Bikers.

    Jahan tak mera khayal hai Mr 10% ki hakomat men tu kuch naya nahi honay wala. isliye we can only dream about it.

    R1 slowly gradually Ustaad logo mein bhi improvement aa jaaege
    If Yamaha guys are very serious than surely they will train Ustaad log too
    and i think they are,
    Yamaha is willing to invest 150$, so they must have thought of this
    they will open their official service centres in big cities
    that is the way they should come unlike Ravi the way, they have launched their product
    I mean they have gotten a good product but after sales service is not good
