Still relevant because Imrand is Pakistan personified.

This is just a bidding war and uncle sam appears to have the pakis by their ball. Us wants CPEC closed but bhikaristan to survive.

Immi is cricketer. He's eyeing the currency to beat Saeed Anwar's highest test score. Next is Saeed Anwar's highest ODI score.
And then enter the league of Sachin, Sehwag, Rohit Sharma.
For now, he'll be happy if the new Paki batsman PKR can cross Fakhar Zaman's ODI highest.
PKR crosses Fakhar Zaman's highest ODI score.
Next target: Chris Gayle. Hopefully in a week.

Year end target: Rohit Sharma, InshaGanesha.

IMF daily gradually pushing its D!K inside the @ss of Porkistan and Porkies. Screwing them slowly with lots of love/fun/pleasure... 😊😊
Short term pain, but if these go through will be good for Pak in long run. Pakistanis have been living beyond their means for a while. Their electricity, oil and gas consumption and overall consumption might decrease causing a temporary slow down, but it will be more sustainable if they follow through with all the IMF reforms.

that is why we would want political and military turmoil based on this.we need internal players making a rukus due to this.

we must see a difference on the ground in terms of lack of military funding and hence decay in military capital expenditure.

hence things might stabilize in 10-20 years.

What we need is Immi back. He was announcing a new social welfare program every month, right now he is attacking PDM for raising gas, oil and electricity prices. He would have definitely bankrupted the country.

There are lots of such videos on SM.

any opinions on whether such manufacturing is net positive for pak economy or negative?
positive as in low cost manufacturing.
negative could be product is basic, less value add.

not even getting into labour protection and safety standard type issues.

couldn't find price of this product in pak, but in India they range from 500-1600 ₹ per kg.

This is basically the state of the Pakistani manufacturing sector. Unlike how we provide specialised manufacturing jobs to a few thousands in established factories like car manufacturing, etc, they mostly have informal jobs, which employ thousands of people with little to no regard for safety. We too have such informal industries, but for them, it is a major part of their manufacturing sector.

These informal factories in Pakistan are of two types, ones in which the end customer are foreign entities (for example, FIFA makes all of it's footballs in a specific sweatshop in Pakistan) and more commonly, those whose end customers are domestic entities themselves. The condition in both are the same, with safety given the last priority and monetary efficiency given the highest.

Pakistan is well known for it's lead-acid battery reassembly shops and the engine block reassembling workshops. Most of these cater to the Pakistani truck owners, who use these reassembled spare parts as they are much cheaper and more readily available than new parts. So I guess these informal business are good (if you disregard the safety aspect) as they provide a meagre export value and somewhat reduce imports, not that it has any effect given how huge their import deficit is.

if we could find the retail price of these leaf springs, could get an idea on how cost-efficient this is.
