He stated that the government has continued to reject their demands, and that they would not engage in negotiations with authorities unless their profit margins on petroleum product sales are enhanced by 6%.

Butt said that the administration had already assured the gasoline dealers that their demands would be satisfied, hence the strike had been called off.

The PPDA secretary responded to a query by saying that no government official had contacted them regarding their requests so far.

The Chip Shortage in the Automobile Industry is Nearing an End – Morgan Stanley

The Chip Shortage in the Automobile Industry is Nearing an End – Morgan Stanley

November 19, 2021 / By Zunair Tahir / News Pakistan

The Global automotive industry has been ravaged by the semiconductor microprocessor crisis, causing several carmakers throughout the world to hack their production statistics and implement cost-cutting measures. Several analysts have predicted that the situation would continue to deepen over the following two quarters.

In contrast to these reports, Morgan Stanley (MS) recently said that the global car industry’s microprocessor shortfall is nearly gone.

Countries in Southeast and Central Asia, such as China, Taiwan, Malaysia, South Korea, and Japan, as well as the Netherlands and the United States, are among the world’s top microchip producers.

According to recent reports from MS, Malaysia has resumed full-scale semiconductor production, and the rest of Asia’s manufacturers will soon follow suit.

Along with the growth in Malaysian manufacturing in October, vehicle production and cloud data center server shipments are expected to improve. These components are projected to boost automobile manufacturers’ production and sales statistics in the near future.

MS also stated that the Japanese chip manufacturing lines will stabilize by December, allowing automakers to fill gaps more quickly.

However, automobile costs are unlikely to fall in the future since chipmakers are predicted to raise prices for their products because chips are still a scarce commodity in a market still recovering from the pandemic’s effects.

The oldest car in the exhibition was a 1922 Amilcar constructed in France; others were a 1954 Austin Healey, 1955 TR, 1955 Ford Thunderbird created in the United States, a blue Rolls Royce (1972 Model), a dark green Mazda 818 (1971), scarlet Mustang Ford (1965), Baby Mercedes 190 SL, and MG TD Kit Car (1952).

When questioned if owning and maintaining a historic automobile was a costly pastime, Yousuf Rao, owner of the MG TD Kit Car, said he was in the gold and jewelry industry and owned a number of other antique cars, including a Volkswagen, Beatle, and Moped Bike.

VCCCP

The Vintage and Classic Cars Club of Pakistan, according to Mohsin Ikram, was founded roughly 30 years ago to bring together automobile lovers from all across Pakistan and promote the sport under the theme of “history on wheels.”

We’ve been presenting our automobiles at various vintage car exhibits around the country, he added, noting that they recently displayed their classic cars at the Fort of Bala Hisaar.

Some of our automobiles, he explained, have a long history: one (Packard 1929) belonged to the Maharaja of Patiala, another (Lincoln Continental 1947) to King Zahir Shah of Afghanistan, and so on.

The event was part of Serena Hotels’ Cultural Diplomacy, according to CEO Aziz Boolani.

They took part in the 11th VCCCP Karachi to Khyber Classic Car Rally 2021, and will depart for Peshawar on Wednesday for the rally’s last stage.

The government has declined to offer a one-time exception for antique automobile imports. The trade ministry had presented a case to the cabinet in this respect at a meeting held last week.

The participants were notified by the Commerce Division that the Import Policy Order (IPO) 2020, Appendix-C, Clause 10 indicated that the import of second hand/used automobiles was prohibited, save for those explicitly exempted under Chapter 87.
Pakistanis are prohibited from importing secondhand automobiles, even vintage vehicles.
