Limited, in discussions with journalists. Hashmi noted a slight recovery in the local auto industry, which has suffered an average decline of 50% over 18 consecutive months, a trend that should benefit sellers. He highlighted the ongoing challenges facing the local auto salesman industry, including economic conditions, soaring vehicle prices and political uncertainty, which impact sellers at all levels. “Low demand, Letter of Credit (LC) issues and high imports of used cars are factors contributing to the industry’s plight,” he explained.
