True. Pakistan is beset with "Shaalmi" syndrome. Don't want to manufacture; just import and resell.The core of the problem can be described as follows:
We at government level facilitate trading versus manufacturing
We at government level facilitate informal sector v/s formal sector.
Plus; no work ethic in Pakistan's "educated" class; whether it be software professionals, or run of the mill MBA's / engineers.
Owners of major software houses have no work ethic too; they're running sweatshops with daily crunch time mode (working till 3 in the morning only to return at 9am sharp); and Saturday's turned on because ramzan hai kaam pura karna hai!
