The Daily Struggles of a Pakistani Used Car Dealer
The number of people who've chosen Japan to be their new home marked a record high in 2019, exceeding 2.8 million. That’s about two percent of Japan’s population. Having settled into their communities, they have become part of Japanese society.
This program offers a glimpse into their lives and the hardships they face in Japanese society. More than 600 dealers from across Asia and the Middle East gather at a huge used vehicle auction. They are foreign exporters who came to live in Japan, searching for the best deal and trying to make it big in their adopted country. A Pakistani, Mian Mohammad Sadiq is one of them. We follow him in his daily struggles. (This program was broadcast on July 14, 2020.)
