* Pakistan - Volvo to re-enter in
-- The transport network and its industry seem to be ‘in-thing’ at the moment, with the latest development being the decision of Europe’s leading bus manufacturing company Volvo to re-enter the Pakistani market... The company had a brief relationship with the Pakistani government in the 1980s, but the project did not have a long-lasting impact, shutting down as the country paid less attention to its road networks... However, after decades, Pakistan is exploring a new-found love for the transport sector and this has led Volvo Pakistan Limited to seriously consider catering to a growing market... Volvo Pakistan Limited Chief Executive Officer Waqar Asghar said the success of the project – that will see the company provide luxury buses for road transportation – is dependent on consumer feedback, based on which the company would decide its future expansion plan... The company will provide 50 units per annum, as it is targeting the organised inter-city bus operators who can afford the induction of Volvo buses in their existing fleet...
