Hinopak is Pakistan’s first automobile company to export its buses to Middle East and African countries in early 1990′s and once again Hinopak will soon take a gigantic leap in the international market by starting export of buses to Middle East and Africa. In this regard, Mohammad Irfan Shaikh, Director Sales and Marketing, Hinopak stated its principal Hino Motors Ltd., Japan allowed for manufacturing Hino buses for export to Middle East and Africa. In this regard the first meeting with Hino distributors from Middle East and Africa was held in November last year, where Hino distributors showed their keen interest in Hino buses because of their quality which is not less than any international bus.
Irfan Shaikh also congratulated the City District Government Karachi to start the pilot project by inducting CNG buses in Karachi transport system.
