INTRODUCTION: to the purchasing and offering of

INTRODUCTION:

Trade is an essential
financial idea including the purchasing and offering of merchandise and
ventures, with pay paid by a purchaser to a vender, or the trading of products
or administrations between gatherings. The most widely recognized medium of
trade for these exchanges is cash, however exchange may likewise be executed
with the trading of products or administrations between both sides, alluded to
as a deal, or installment with virtual money, the most prevalent of which is
bit coin. In monetary markets, exchanging alludes to the purchasing and
offering of securities

Internal trade is also
known as Home trade. It is conducted within the political and geographical
boundaries of a country. It can be at local level, regional level or national
level. Hence trade carried on among traders of Delhi, Mumbai, etc. is called
home trade. Internal trade can be further sub-divided into two groups,

 The first is Wholesale Trade. It involves
buying in large quantities from producers or manufacturers and selling in lots
to retailers for resale to consumers. The wholesaler is a link between
manufacturer and retailer. A wholesaler occupies prominent position since
manufacturers as well as retailers both are dependent upon him. Wholesaler act
as an intermediary between producers and retailers. The second is Retail Trade.
It involves buying in smaller lots from the wholesalers and selling in very
small quantities to the consumers for personal use. The retailer is the last
link in the chain of distribution. He establishes a link between wholesalers
and consumers. There are different types of retailers small as well as large.
Small scale retailers includes hawkers, pedlars, general shops, etc.

I chose this topic
because it is a very stimulating topic. It gave me knowledge not only about
Pakistan’s trade but also about the trade of other countries as well. It was a
very good learning experience for me and people can also know the reason as to
why trade is important for the development of Pakistan.

GLOBAL PERSPECTIVE:

Trade holds great
importance for the development of different countries. America earns more than
20% of the world’s total income and is right now the world’s leading universal
trader. American prosperity has been developed just because of opening world
markets and expanding trade. According to the Peterson Institute for International
Economics, American genuine salaries are 9% higher than they would somehow or
another have been as a consequence of exchange changing activities since the
Second World War. This 9% signifies $1.5 trillion in American income. When
America’s most economical products are increased in production, they are then
exported to other countries thus raises U.S income. Shifting production to the foremost competitive
areas of their economy helps raise the productivity of the common employee and
through that, they earn financial gain.

NATIONAL PERSPECTIVE:

Pakistan’s fares
expanded more than 100% from $7.5 billion in 1999 to remain at $18 billion in
the money related year 2007-2008.

 

Pakistan sends out
rice, kinnows, mangoes, furniture, cotton fiber, concrete, tiles, marble,
materials, dress, cowhide merchandise, sports products (famous for
footballs/soccer balls), cutlery, surgical instruments, electrical machines,
programming, floor coverings, carpets, dessert, domesticated animals meat,
chicken, powdered drain, wheat, fish (particularly shrimp/prawns), vegetables,
handled nourishment things, Pakistani-collected Suzukis (to Afghanistan and
different nations), barrier hardware (submarines, tanks, radars), salt, onyx,
designing merchandise, and numerous different things. Pakistan delivers and
fares bonds to Asia and the Middle East. In August 2007, Pakistan began sending
out concrete to India to fill in the lack there created by the building blast.
Russia is a developing business sector for Pakistani exporters. In 2009/2010
the fare focus of Pakistan was US $20 billion. As of April 2011, Pakistan’s

PERSONAL PERSPECTIVE:

Personally, I think
that trade is an important aspect for Pakistan as it brings foreign investment
in the country which results into creation of large number of jobs which, in turn,
leads to diminishing of lawlessness and frustration in the society. Trade helps
in the improvement of GDP growth which is very beneficial for our country.
Benefits of trade internationally are
similar to those within an economy. It allows specialization therefore
increased production. It engenders cooperation between sectors and nations. The
areas that lack certain resources can get those products which would otherwise
be unavailable. It leads to increased development so the whole economy grows
and develops.

POSSIBLE FUTURE SCENARIOS:

Foreign trade is very
important for the development of Pakistan as the Export of Raw Material and
Semi Finished Goods can take place. Moreover the import of machinery and
industrial raw material can occur. The prices of these items are increasing in
international market. Therefore the total import bill is increasing day by day.
Because of foreign trade, there will be increased use of petroleum products. In
Pakistan number of motor vehicles and other means of transports are increasing.
Similarly due to industrialization, use of machinery is increasing. All hese
factors are increasing demand of petrol and petroleum products, prices of which
are rapidly increasing in the international market, causing increase in the
Pakistan’s import bill. Most of the export and import trade of Pakistan is
carried on by foreign shipping companies, as our shipping industry is not
developed and we do not have many cargo ships. Similarly foreign banks and
insurance companies render their services in international trade. Thus lot of
foreign exchange is spent on such service charges. Universal exchange is the
foundation of our present day, business world, as makers in different countries
attempt to benefit from an extended market, as opposed to be constrained to
offering inside their own outskirts. There are numerous reasons that exchange
crosswise over national fringes happens, incorporating lower generation costs
in one area versus another, particular businesses, need or overflow of normal
assets and purchaser tastes.business world, as makers in different countries

ACTION PLAN:

To be successful in
trading, one needs to understand the importance of and adhere to a set of rules
that have guided all types of traders, with a variety of trading account sizes.
To increase trade, there should always be a trading plan. A trading plan is a written set of rules that
specifies a trader’s entry, exit and money management criteria. Using a trading
plan allows traders to do this, although it is a time consuming endeavor. For
increasing trade, traders should treat dealing like a business, not as a hobby.
As a hobby, where no real commitment to
learning is made, trading can be very expensive. Trading
is a competitive business, and one can assume the person sitting on the other
side of a trade is taking full advantage of technology. Charting platforms
allow traders an infinite variety of methods for viewing and analyzing the
markets. Backtesting an idea on historical data prior to risking any cash can
save a trading account, not to mention stress and frustration. Saving money to fund a trading account can take a
long time and much effort. It can be even more difficult (or impossible) the
next time around. It is important to note that protecting your trading capital
is not synonymous with not having any losing trades. All traders have losing
trades; that is part of business.

PERSONAL REFLECTION:

I would like to
conclude my report by saying that trade IS a very important segment for
Pakistan as it allows the country to gain more money. It also helps in the
change of GDP development which is extremely advantageous for our nation and it
will allow our nation to flourish.
