As the main seaport, financial center and former capital, Karachi is Pakistan's most important city for trade and a major contributor to the country's GDP. Main industries are banking, IT and software development alongside manufacturing of textiles, steel, machinery, pharmaceuticals and chemicals. Several large corporations have headquarters here across a range of sectors including medical research, the automotive industry, advertising and fashion. Karachi has a lively nightlife which has earned it the nickname "City of Lights", with concerts, fashions shows and music gigs played in large and small venues alike. Sport fans will be unable to avoid cricket, a national passion, and shoppers will be pleased with the selection of glitzy shopping malls. There is also a huge selection of galleries and museums for culture lovers in Karachi to enjoy.
