Karachi is the financial capital of Pakistan. It accounts for a major percentage of Pakistan’s tax revenue and it has a population of more 25 million. It is the 2nd largest city in the world by population. However, despite its large size and despite its financial status, Karachi did not have many skyscrapers till recently.
