We don’t even manufacture sh*t in Pakistan and these politicians want us to buy local products. Screw Zardari.

Pakistan is getting worse day by day. Great time to increase duty on Air Conditioners (it should have been done atleast 6 months ago and should have included other luxury Electronics that consume lot of electricity).


#17

i dont think these are luxury items, itz common need for every person..


#18

Yes most of these are common needs. Most of the homes need refrigerators, fans, etc. All this policy is going to do is encourage smuggling, and thus avoid duties. This way smuggling thrives and consumers continue to pay less.

Any books on "Smuggling for dummies"? Might be the only way left now to make a buck in this land.

Is there a tax on laptops?

so i ordered a business report for investment in pakistan from an american website which i happen to be a member of....which gave tips and some industry specific information..

in the area of government,,, it was written that the army likes to take over now and then because of coruption in politicians and disorganization and that this cycle will continue...

the armed forces being the most organized force in pakistan will always be there wwiththeir influence,,

disorganized people will always be defeated again and again and again and......

here's looking forward towards the next government change (which will happen eventually)
