Rupee’s depreciation is gradually affecting all of the major Pakistani sectors and prices of imported materials and products are inevitably rising. The government has also increased oil prices to meet the revenue deficit caused due to rupee’s depreciation.
Moreover, we can also expect other sectors which rely heavyily on imports to increase their prices and expectedly, Honda Pakistan will increase their prices too.
Several experts concluded that the auto sector will see a 10-15% price increase in the coming days. The manufacturers have to bear an additional cost due to the US dollar’s strength hence these additional costs are directly transferred to the end consumers.
