This can be an immense opportunity for Pakistani businessmen. When opportunity knocks your door, you better open that door, or else it will never return to your door. Pakistan needs to diversify its export products from just Cotton and Textile based to more Engineered products like Auto Products and Electrical Equipment which are being made in Pakistan. Specially the auto parts of Japanese origin cars like Brake Pads, seats, body panels, etc. are in Huge Demand in Latin America and West Indies, where Japanese cars are very popular.
