Despite grappling with the adverse impacts of the economic downturn, the automotive industry in Pakistan is gearing up for the much-anticipated event of the year, the Pakistan Auto Show 2023 (PAS 2023).
The Pakistan Auto Show event slated to take place from October 27 to 29 at the Expo Center in Karachi, is expected to draw considerable attention from automotive enthusiasts across the country.
The Pakistan Association of Automotive Parts and Accessories Manufacturers (PAAPAM), the organizing body for the annual PAS, has been instrumental in facilitating the show’s success over the years. Last year’s event was held under the theme “Made in Pakistan,” fostering a sense of pride and achievement in the local automotive sector.
As with previous years, PAS 2023 is expected to see the unveiling of new models and innovations by automakers. The event has stirred considerable excitement among car enthusiasts, industry analysts, and the general public, all eager for a sneak peek into the future trajectory of Pakistan’s auto industry.
A noted industry expert, in conversation with ProPakistani, expressed concern over the waning interest of local and international stakeholders in the automotive industry. However, he affirmed that PAS could serve as a pivotal platform to rekindle this interest and shine a spotlight on the sector’s potential.
He emphasized that the domestic auto industry holds significant potential for robust growth in the forthcoming years. Acknowledging this potential, PAAPAM offers PAS as a platform for automakers to exhibit their forthcoming products and stimulate stakeholder engagement, thus contributing to the industry’s growth trajectory.
