  • Pakistan telecom., sector all out supporting the Chinese products to be announced at the GSMA2020 Barcelona. Pakistan digitalised sector comprised mostly Chinese origin/branded products. Pakistan as always supported warmly China in times of Corona Virus in China for participation at the GSMA2020.
    As positive gesture all new digital products coming to Pakistan should be provided at the most realistic costs/prices to support the cause of Corona Virus, to equip the nation for Digitisation of Pakistan. All batteries, memories, RAM, Display panels, Qualcomm processors, should be provided in Pakistan for local assembly and exports to Chinese customers through out the world, as earlier it was doing with FoxConn in China, Korea, Taiwan, etc.
    Pakistan will support China warmly with the true spirit of friends in this time.
    With best wishes
