PREAMBLE

From the last few decades Pakistan has invested a lot in building roads which lead to high demand of cars in public. The National logistic cell (NLC) took away all the freights because of road pathways. So roads took away passengers and freights from Pakistan Railways (PR). The crisis in PR started in the 1970s and continues to this date. The passenger traffic has reduced, freight traffic has truncated and revenues have scaled down while working expenses have soared. PR is merely an employment agency with a huge amount of capital with large land. The major aim of organizing this webinar was to have an insight of PR and its situation in international context
