BR Research sat down last week with Irfan Haider Awan, the founder & CEO of PSGI, to discuss this partnership's objectives and his company's future action plan vis-à-vis online B2B marketplace in Pakistan. "Online B2B marketplace multiplies a seller's prospects and opportunities. Even a small seller, located in any small city or town, is able to reach interested buyers in all parts of the globe. It's an easy and faster way to find new customers outside of one's geographical confines," Irfan started off. 

He feels that the usage of B2B portals in Pakistan is in its nascent stage, as small businesses, which form a bulk of the enterprises in Pakistan, prefer to keep low profile online. "We entered into this line of business after we saw significant potential in the online B2B marketplace for Pakistani SMEs. Our workings showed that Pakistani sellers were looking for an online portal that not only offered a big buyer market, but also better service delivery, back-end support, and unique web interface. We partnered with Alibaba.com, which offers all these attributes and is a globally established online marketplace."

Economies of many countries are growing via online opportunities- Unfortunately Pakistan don’t have any substantial shares in online business while all the developed, developing and under development countries are welcoming to online opportunities. In the whole world online trade transaction have exceeded from 12.4 trillion, if Pakistan takes a benefit of online trading its income can be multiplied by twice or thrice easily.

In the reply of question what is B2B in fact, he said that this is an online space or platform that brings together buyers and sellers to communicate, collaborate, and to rend their business transactions, and in Pakistan PSGI is providing these services with world’s 2 big B2B platform-Worldoftrade.com and other one is the largest Global B2B platform Ecplaza.net.

PSGI goal is to give solution and business to every industry, exporter and businessman from Pakistan for their products and services, sitting in their offices or homes. Although, Pakistani members are not tuned pay for extensive and special services, whereas B2B platforms are also offering some free basic services, but still PSGI is struggling to bring every exporter and importer of Pakistan to a B2B platform to increase their profits, reduce their cost and increase exports of Pakistan.
As The company helps small businesses convert into global enterprises by providing them a state of the art online and by using the platform they could market their products internationally, find genuine buyers, satisfy their buying needs and explore regional and international business opportunities, We are a SME and want to help SME to grow in multinational company-CEO and Founder of PSGI-Irfan Haider Awan
