Honda, along with Suzuki and Toyota is observing non-production days due to the restrictions on imports of CKD parts by the government in order to save the precious foreign reserves, which is hampering the assembling of local cars. The company has notified the Pakistan Stock Exchange (PSX):

“In accordance with Clause 5.6.1 (a) of PSX Regulations, we hereby convey the following material information:

In continuation to our letter dated October 03, 2022, whereby as a result of the Government’s stringent measures of minimizing the import of CKD kits and raw materials, the Company’s supply chain had been disrupted leading to plant shutdown till October 11, 2022.

Due to continuation of the said problem, management has decided to further extend the shutdown of the plant from October 12, 2022, to October 15, 2022. Further updates, if any, in this regard will be communicated accordingly.

You may please inform the TRE Certificate holders of the Exchange accordingly.”
