Assignment Help Pakistan has recently been conducting a research on the culture of ‘brand bee’ recently prevailed in the country. The culture of being brand conscious not only for luxury items but for generic items as well. People now do not feel any shame in clearly mentioning that they are truly brand conscious and hence are able to pay high for something with the same quality but that has a worthy label to it.
