    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.

    Headless National Industrial Parks in disarray - The Express Tribune

    KARACHI: The National Industrial Parks Development and Management Company
    (NIP), a subsidiary of the Pakistan Industrial Development Corporation (PIDC) which brought foreign investment of $150 million giving a much-needed boost to the economy, is encountering serious problems in developing and implementing high-level strategies, making major corporate decisions and managing its operations and resources.

    This is forcing potential investors, both foreign and domestic entrepreneurs, to pull out. Some of them have even applied for the refund of their investments, which run into millions.

    At a time when Japan’s Yamaha is ready to roll out motorcycles from its $150 million plant in the Bin Qasim Industrial Park, developed and managed by NIP, the company is in complete disarray, apparently because it has been without a CEO since September 2014.
    In fact, with the groundbreaking of the Yamaha manufacturing plant, Karachi has regained the status of one of the most attractive places for investment in the region.

    A fairly large number of foreign investors had started visiting this industrial zone to acquire plots. Some of them were in final stages of concluding the deal, but the problems prevented them from doing so.

    The company, established under the public-private partnership model, has managed to develop three industrial zones in the country – Korangi Creek Industrial Park and Bin Qasim Industrial Park in Karachi and Rachna Industrial Park in Lahore.



    Until September 2014, it was efficiently working in these industrial zones with a total area of 1,345 acres. It also managed to pay back a loan of Rs2 billion to the bank on maturity.

    The company has the potential of generating its own revenue through the sale of its projects, which has already been achieved by selling the Korangi Creek Industrial Park. This park was developed over an area of 240 acres at a cost of Rs3.3 billion with investment opportunities for Rs20 billion, potential to contribute Rs40 billion annually to the GDP and provide 30,000 direct and 180,000 indirect jobs to the people of Karachi.

    Pall of gloom

    Data shows that 102 customers have bought plots of different sizes to build manufacturing units and a number of them have already started construction work. The company has so far earned about Rs2,887 million through the sale of plots.

    Unfortunately, the absence of CEO for the last six months is not only ruining the company’s potential but is also creating worries among the staff, which is detrimental to its growth.

    There is a need to lift the pall of gloom as the company is facing problems in analysing situations, making decisions and aligning the staff towards common goals. If the uncertainty persists, this may result in complete collapse of a company, which was instrumental in giving a new impetus to industrial activities in Karachi.

    Though NIP managed to acquire the status of a special economic zone (SEZ) for its industrial parks, it is not in a position to derive maximum benefits of the SEZ Act for the customers.

    Under the Act, NIP could extend facilities like exemption from customs duties and taxes for all capital goods imported for the development, operation and maintenance of a unit.

    On the other hand, the manufacturing units would be eligible for exemption from all taxes on the income earned from development and operation for a period of 10 years.

    Objectives

    The mission assigned to NIP by the government was to create an environment that allows customers to grow and flourish in the global market. The objectives of the company include supporting rapid industrialisation in the country by developing new industrial parks and rehabilitating those that might be attracting industrialists, promoting interaction between the industrialists and the government so as to create conducive environment, providing a platform for the industries to increase productivity and promoting creation of jobs.

    At present, the company is being run collectively by the three general managers, appropriately defining the old clich? “too many cooks spoil the broth”. It is an established fact that if too many people participate in a task, they spoil everything.

    While Yamaha has a healthy amount of fanboys (on PW), it will still be considered an expensive bike relative to other options in the market. The best thing they can do is borrow a leaf from Pak Suzuki and offer the bikes on installments (preferably 0% interest for the halal/haram conscious crowd) over minimum 3-6 month period. Increased payback time (6-12 months) could be coupled with interest, despite it not being desirable from many customers. This way, the more Islam-inclined customers could also benefit.

    Also, upfront payment of entire amount with some discount on stated price (or perhaps extra accessories/goodies thrown in) would also entice customers.

    Why adopt that back foot strategy at first place, why not come on a front foot and hit a six out of the park i.e. come up with a good product at right price and become category leader

    A 'good product at right price' is not the formula for success in Pakistan because in an extremely price conscious market like Pakistan, there is no right price and other factors like resale, cheapest possible maintenance, etc matter more to consumers.

    There are total three segments in lower to middle class category in Pakistan who go out in market to buy a brand new vehicle;

    1st Segment
    Chinese 70cc buyers, they have nothing to do with 1 Lack rupees plus bike so not a target market for Yamaha although a few of them could also be the potential buyers in future.

    2nd Segment
    This segment belongs to the people who don't have enough money to buy 800cc car, the best option currently available for them is GS & Deluxe.

    3rd Segment
    800cc car Buyers, they are not the target market for Yamaha either. Though the buyers of four wheeler could also buy Yamaha but they would buy it for recreational purpose.

    Conclusion:

    There is a huge demand in 2nd Segment Yamaha can capitalize upon, it is right that Pakistani market is very price conscious but it doesn't mean that people are short of cash for a right product.

    Resale has a direct relationship with sale, if Yamaha could achieve good sales for its bikes then resale would not be any problem and for cheapest maintenance, first if the bike's built quality is good then it requires less frequent maintenance, second the person who is buying a 1 Lack plus rupees bike would also be able to afford a bit more on its maintenance.

    So Yamaha should launch FZ16 or Fazer 150 to meet the unfulfilled demand of 2nd Segment. Demand of GS150 would increase more if they would launch YBR125.

    we dont want to think about it who will be going to buy or who will not, we are just happy for change the trend of motor bikes in pakistan that's it.
