KARACHI:  The Chairman of Pakistan Association of Auto Parts & Accessories Manufacturers (PAAPAM), Mashood Ali Khan, has appealed to the local government that they should take immediate action to repair both access road sliding to the Karachi Expo Centre.
In an attempt to draw the attention of the authorities, Chairman PAAPAM has appealed to the Governor of Sindh, Chief Minister of Sindh, Mayor Karachi and the  Provincial governments to take notice of the two main roads leading to the Expo Centre, i.e. Shara-e-Faisal and University Road, which are in shambles and undergoing a long 
PAAPAM's organizing committee of the Pakistan Auto Show, has announced that their PAPS 2017 event will be held in the first week of March at the Expo, and they fear that the conditions of the roads coupled with the poor management of traffic on above avenues, will give negative signals about Pakistan to the large number of foreign industrialists and overseas delegations, who will attend the Auto Show.
The three-day Pakistan auto show, under the brand name of PAPS 2017, will host participants from China, Korea, Germany, Turkey, Holland, and other European countries. For these international delegations, the terrible road conditions would give a poor representation of an otherwise booming economy.
PAAPAM appeals to the authorities to immediately improve the condition of these roads, so that transport to and from the exhibition for the international delegates can be made safer and convenient, and a good image of our country can be presented to the foreign delegations.
