Exhibition of Automobile Industry in PAPS-2000


Abid, Hussain, Economic Review


Although the journey of automobile industry in Pakistan was started by Army Division, Chief Inspector of Vehicles in Chaklala Rebuild Factories, M/s National Motors started manufacturing Bedford Trucks in 1960. Since then auto parts vendor industry wheeling with the support of the establishment of the following OEMs, Suzuki Motorcycles Pakistan Ltd. in 1962, Atlas Honda Ltd. in 1964, Dawood Yamaha Ltd. in 1975, Millat Tractors in 1978, Pak Suzuki Motor Company Ltd. 1982, AI-Ghazi Tractors 1984, Kohinoor Motor Works in 1984, Hino Pak. Ltd. in 1986, Indus Motors in 1994, PCICS (Sohrab) in 1996, Fateh Motors in 1997, Dewan Farooq (Hyundai) in 1998.

The vendor industry grew side by side to fulfill the requirement of all the above Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) by their own resources without having any support from the Government. If the deletion programme of the OEMs could be followed and monitored by the respective companies and simultaneously by the Government the present position could have been much better than to-date. The most important factor of Vendor Industry was very much visible and understandable after PAPS-2000, that this industry now deserved support by the Government and concerned ministry to take notice to all the requirements of the vendor industry right from the import of raw material to the finished products. Presently all these aspects are being handled solely by the industry itself without any incentive from Government.

There is an utmost need to organize such types of shows regularly each year and invite Government Official, Armed forces personnels, Members of all Chambers/Stock Exchanges, Members of the foreign consulate, all SAARC countries delegates, technical institutions. PAAPAM and EPB could also use electronic and print media and effective publicity methods to attract local as well as foreign visitors including the Traders of Auto Parts of the country.

It is an established fact that small and medium size industries always play vital role and immense support to provide a good industrial economic base of any country. But unfortunately in Pakistan these industries are always been ignored and did not have any provision in the policies of Government at any level whereas its contribution to the country's economy could be judged by the following performance.

Vehicles Which are Being Manufactured by these Industries

* Truck and Buses - 2,500 Units: With the maximum deletion level of 51%. In all there are three manufacturers with the market share of HINO 50%, NISSAN 35%, MAZDA 15%.

* Commercial - 10,000 Units: With the maximum deletion level of 80%. In all there are three manufacturers with the market share of SUZUKI 70%, TOYOTA 12%, KIA 18%. …
