  • Interesting from house of Xiaomi. As Pakistan is in the phase digitalization in Auto, in telecoms, education, this is a welcome sign. I’m currently working with the EU for digitalization of transport in Pakistan and compliant to EU standards on safety, climate change, emissions, accident avoidance etc., Xiaomi could be a partner to be consider as we are doing a lot with the EU.
