  12. 13. Sana Khalid - 127 SUBSTITUTE FOR IMPORT & EXPORT
  13. 14. Substitutes for Imports and Exports in Pakistan <ul><li>Ethanol a viable substitute for oil in motor vehicles </li></ul><ul><li>World food prices have risen sharply in recent months </li></ul><ul><li>Trend is likely to continue as more and more agricultural land is converted from the growing of food crops to crops like sugar cane and maize </li></ul><ul><li>It can be turned into ethanol – for use as a substitute for petrol in automobiles </li></ul><ul><li>This change is being driven by high oil prices, which have made ethanol a cheaper substitute </li></ul><ul><li>The surging import bill on oil can be reduced through the promotion of this new initiative as substitute for motor vehicles oil </li></ul><ul><li>It can save the foreign exchange of estimated 500 million dollars </li></ul>Substitutes for Imports
  14. 15. <ul><li>Coal as Substitute for Gas </li></ul><ul><li>There is an acute gas shortage all over the country besides power </li></ul><ul><li>We have to use our coal reserves to convert into natural gas </li></ul><ul><li>To overcome the shortage instead of importing gas at very high rates. </li></ul><ul><li>Coal gasification and coal-to-liquid are some proven technologies </li></ul><ul><li>Which can be successfully employed in Pakistan to reduce dependence on imported oil and natural gas. </li></ul><ul><li>Coal gasification offers one of the most versatile and cleanest ways </li></ul><ul><li>Convert the energy content of coal into electricity, hydrogen, and other energy forms. </li></ul>
  15. 16. Biodiesel commercialization in Pakistan <ul><li>The majority of the worlds energy needs are supplied through petrochemical sources, coal and natural gas. </li></ul><ul><li>All of these sources are finite and at certain usage rate will be consumed by the end of the next century. </li></ul><ul><li>The depletion of the world petroleum reserves and increased environmental concerns has stimulated recent interest in alternative sources for petroleum based fuels. </li></ul><ul><li>Biodiesel defined as “a substitute for, or an additive to Diesel fuel that is derived from the oils and fats of plants and animals” </li></ul><ul><li>Monoalkyl esters of long chain fatty acids derived from a renewable lipid feedstock, </li></ul><ul><li>Such as vegetable oil or animal fat, is becoming popular in developing countries as well as developed ones. </li></ul>
  16. 17. Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) as Inter Fuel Substitution <ul><li>Hydrocarbon Development Institute of Pakistan </li></ul><ul><li>(HDIP) has pioneered the use </li></ul><ul><li>of environment friendly Compressed Natural </li></ul><ul><li>Gas (CNG) in road transport </li></ul><ul><li>As an economically viable inter-fuel import </li></ul><ul><li>substitution in petroleum sector. </li></ul><ul><li>The commercial application of CNG </li></ul><ul><li>technology now forms an important </li></ul><ul><li>element of Government’s petroleum policy. </li></ul><ul><li>HDIP’s CNG stations also act as Advanced </li></ul><ul><li>Fuel Resource Centres to advise the Government </li></ul><ul><li>on safety and regulatory aspects </li></ul><ul><li>To conduct inspection, training and </li></ul><ul><li>human resource development. </li></ul>
  17. 18. Canola Oil, a better substitute for Palm Oil <ul><li>Biomedical research shows that palm oil is high </li></ul><ul><li>in saturated fat and develops heart diseases. </li></ul><ul><li>The National Health Heart, Lung and Blood </li></ul><ul><li>Institutes, World Health Organization have </li></ul><ul><li>advised less consumption of palm oil. </li></ul><ul><li>On the other hand, Canola is considered </li></ul><ul><li>by GRAS (Generally recognized as Safe) </li></ul><ul><li>oil by the USFDA. </li></ul><ul><li>Canola oil diet was found to have immense health </li></ul><ul><li>benefits for the bonding and reorganization of </li></ul><ul><li>tissues in the body. </li></ul><ul><li>Researchers have discovered Regular average use </li></ul><ul><li>of canola oil reduces the chances of heart stroke </li></ul><ul><li>Benefits on cholesterol and on lowering blood </li></ul><ul><li>pressure. </li></ul>
  18. 19. Substitutes for Exports <ul><li>There is no possible substitute for exports in Pakistan. </li></ul><ul><li>If Pakistan has to export something it has to export only that thing. </li></ul><ul><li>Any substitute will not be accepted. </li></ul><ul><li>For example if Pakistan has to export rice,cotton,vegetables or fruits, </li></ul><ul><li>There is no possible substitute for cotton,rice,vegetables or fruits and for any other exports. </li></ul>

  37. 38. Political instability : <ul><li>Continuing political instability in Islamabad has also weakened investor confidence in Pakistan, putting downwards pressure on the stock exchange, which recently recorded its lowest day of trading in terms of volume. </li></ul>
  38. 39. Business Opportunities <ul><li>it is a matter of great concern that despite the enormous potential and attractive business opportunities in Pakistan, the potential investors did not come out with money at the desired level due to various reasons, especially the unpredictable policies and law and order situation in the country. </li></ul>
  39. 40. Rising oil prices: <ul><li>Rising oil prices and the import of machinery have severely burdened the balance of trade as the trade deficit reached $3.5 billion in just nine months in the previous years. </li></ul>
  40. 41. labor force <ul><li>There exists surplus labor force in Pakistan, the quality of such a labor is relatively poor in terms of productivity. A good quality labor with technological, and managerial competencies is considered to be significant in improving the competitiveness of countries for inward FDI. But there appears to be a lack of such qualities and skills in labor force in Pakistan. </li></ul>
  41. 42. Low Return on Capital: <ul><li>Low return on capital, low productivity of labor and high rate of bank interest, increased wastage of inputs are the other factors which have made Pakistani products more expensive than those from neighboring countries </li></ul>
