Pakistan is a developing market with a young and increasing population of around 186 million – that’s three times the UK population – and around 55 million live in urban areas.

It’s reckoned Pakistan’s cities generate up to 78% of national Gross Domestic Product (GDP), with Karachi alone contributing about 20%. The growing and aspirational middle class has an appetite for creative, innovative and high quality goods and services.

The country made up 6% of the world’s Gross Domestic Product in 2014 and ranks second in the 2013 Global Wealth Report with 62 Fortune 500 companies and the highest number of millionaires in Asia.

And as recently as 2012, Tokyo had the highest concentration of millionaires in the world.

But while there’s a large market to tap into, flying out to talk turkey in Tokyo will cost a packet – so doing business by conference call instead? It’s cost-effective, convenient and requires nothing more than a landline or mobile phone.
