Exchange Rate Cause Honor Mobile Prices to Increase

Exchange Rate Cause Honor Mobile Prices to Increase

 

As Pakistan is suffering from poor international trade from the last couple of decades. Its imports are higher and exports are lower. Hence it has depreciated the home country’s currency. There is a fluctuation in the exchange rate of Pakistan and hence also cause fluctuations in the prices of smartphones which are shipped to Pakistan from the US.

Secondly, the custom duty and tariff tax cause an increase in the price of smartphones. These taxes are imposed to discourage the imports of the goods. If we see this tax from another angle it is for the betterment of our local industry because they got a chance of low competition and they can flourish in the market. Unfortunately, this is not the case, Pakistani entrepreneurs are not that much confident to invest the money into the business and take the risk to enjoy the profit. Their confidence will only boost when the government is willing to provide a subsidy to the sun rising companies.

The effect of an increase in the exchange rate and custom duty is that the price of the product that is shipped into Pakistan is increased. Let’s take an example of the latest news, in which the price of newly launched phone Huawei Honor 10 is increased by Rs 6000. Its price was 56,999 and after the imposition of tariff and exchange rate, its price is 62,999. Which is a huge difference for developing country like Pakistan. This phone is available for sale in very exciting and exotic colors like midnight blue and sea green.

This increased in pricing news is very much legit and confirmed by official partners of Honor of Pakistan. After the taxes and increase in exchange rate Pakistani public may not be able to afford it. Hence a company should analyse this case and should reduce the price of the smartphone. So that their sales may not effect.
