Pakistan Plans to Get its First Laptop Assembly Plant

Laptop AssemblyPakistan has decide to invite the global manufacturers to get their assembly plants installed in Pakistan, reported APP, a state owned news agency.

Without unveiling any manufacturer, the report said that Pakistan is in efforts to get a laptop assembly plant running in the country to meet local demands primarily and then to export laptops to foreign nations in future.

The decision was taken during a meeting for the implementation of Prime Minister Youth Laptop Scheme under the chairmanship of Higher Education Commission (HEC) Chairperson, Dr Javaid R. Leghari.

It merits mentioning here that earlier it was announced by the government that some 300,000 laptops will be distributed to bright students acquiring higher education at the federal universities.

It was decided that instead of buying such huge quantity of laptops from a single manufacturer, laptop makers will be asked to setup their assembly plant – if not manufacturing facility – in Pakistan.

For the purpose, in the meeting it was decided, to hold an international conference of the potential bidders for establishing laptop assembling and manufacturing plant.

The assembling plant would also help facilitate the distribution of laptop to selected students, as per Prime Minister’s Youth Laptop Scheme.

The meeting discussed the modalities of implementing the laptop scheme recently announced by the government in the annual budget to acknowledge the outstanding performance of the bright young students.

Chairman HEC, Dr Javaid Leghari said HEC was tasked to design the implementation strategy and form eligibility criteria in a transparent manner to promote outreach of youth to information and communication technology.

It maybe recalled that over 100,000 laptops were distributed to college and university students last year in Punjab under Chief Minister’s Youth Laptop scheme.

  • Impressive. Only 50 years behind India and rest of the world. Don’t worry, credit for the first computer virus as well as human will remain with terroristan :)
    Jinnah must be turning in his grave seeing what has become of his dream. Sad.

    • Another bakring indian slumdog.

      Go save your mothers and sisters from being raped in indian local buses first.

      Sad.

      • How many did you Mr Millionaire(wish I could say that). Honestly, how many terrorists are you hiding in your moholla, Oh,forgot, you honor them in public, till some get too maniac to start blowing some of your own…how does home medicine taste?. Like I said, Jinnah if given another chance after looking at what becak of scumistan would not have dared. But then its all for good. Keeping all criminals in jail, all terrorists in…you know where – nopakiston :)

        Just look at ideas you guys are having, approving in the month of Ramazan…Pak or NaPak?

          • So you accept that you guys are terrorists and are funded :)
            Different question if those who fund you or live in you to terrorize India can be called Indians. Ever tried to answer why does every terror attack have a link to NaPak?

            • We accept that we have handful of terrorists funded by India. Indians always have a Sence of inferiority due to centuries of wiping white asses whereas this region has always been a rebel. You just cannot forget that you were never treated as humans by your white masters such as when they ruled they put on the sign of ‘dogs and Indians not allowed’ in their private parties.

              Seriously I see many Indians and Pakistanis in one snap and the first impression I always have about an indian to look like a servant of Pakistani. As somebody says above to go and save your sisters from being raped by a metal rod first. You r a third world country, act like one.

            • Don’t bother replying to these indian mongrels, they get paid for posting bullshit against Pakistan.

              • Look at your country’s map to see who’s dog :)
                If you have the guts, attack directly, not like a scavenger from gutters

            • This Proves that India and Us are the biggest terrorists of the WorLD.!
              They can’t see pakistan as a stable country..!! They will do anything they can to de-stabilize Pakistan..!
              Don’t be happy in doing this stuFF…Uve heard an old proverb.
              “AS YOU SOW,SO SHALL YOU REEP”.!

          • If you have it in you, ask him directly :)
            BTW, are you?. Imagine toe nail calling itself separate from the body…is it?. So are you napakis. Need to be trimmed and flushed to let a new one grow..:)

    • you know INDIA is literally a slumdog millionaire.let me explain,
      slumdog because india hosts world’s largest collection of slums and millionaire because of (apparently) one of worlds largest economy which is a direct result of its mammoth like population!!

    • Give me a reason why?

      Those laptops will have crap build quality and this is just an opportunity for corruption. Government owned companies make little or negative profit historically.

    • what will you terrorists do with tablets, of course unless its a code name for something you can use to kill and harm others :)

        • These guys are gone forever. BTW, you did that today as part of Id. Wait, you do not have buses, probably in bullock cart in your gali :)

          Seriously, what in the world would you need a laptop or a tablet for?

          • why you are so curious about our usage of tablets? is your RAW not capable of gathering intelligence about that ?

            we will control Drones flying over india with these and these Drones are named Jupiter and venus :D

          • Don’t you see your coward soldiers beheaded by not our commandos but jihadis in your territory ha ha ha :) and plz beware of our blasting capacity as we have some Ghoris and Babars to welcome if needed and Yes we dont need laptops but have already made accessories to shut your mouth and holes ..
