Pakistan Automakers Push Import Ban

May 27, 2008

Pakistani automakers are lobbying the government to ban the imports of used cars into Pakistan.

They argue the high demand that local vehicle producers couldn’t cope with a few years ago has dropped and there is no need for allowing older vehicles in for import. They also cite the fact that local producers have invested billions of rupees to increase their production rate. Since demand dropped and supplies have skyrocketed, they believe their local investment may become the losers if imports are allowed to continue.
