Lahore (Web Desk): The Japanese car manufacturers have been dominating in automobile market since a long time. Japanese companies like Toyota, Honda, Suzuki, and Nisan have created a complete monopoly in the car industries of a large number of states including Pakistan.
Japan with a strong automobile industry has no need to import vehicles from other countries, especially from Pakistan where the industrial base is not that strong. However, there is one vehicle which Pakistan seems to be able to make better than Japan.
A Pakistani company ‘Sazgar’ Engineering is exporting rickshaws to Japan. These rickshaws are becoming popular among Japanese and they like to use it for fun and as a hobby rather than as a public transport.
However, there is a lot of scope for these rickshaws in Japan for being quite economical and pretty easy to drive and they can prove to be a great transport vehicle for the narrow streets of some of the Japanese cities.
However, there is a huge opportunity for Sazgar Engineering and other Pakistani companies if they can capitalise in this niche.
