Dawood added, “This is in line with Make-in-Pakistan of MOC [Ministry of Commerce]. I urge all our firms to partner up with leading international companies to set up units in Pakistan.”
It is worth mentioning here that the Ministry of Commerce’s “Make-in-Pakistan” policy seeks to foster import substitution, local business development, and promotion in addition to generating value-added exports. The desired result of this arrangement is achieving a balanced current account and, essentially, enabling Pakistan to restore its financial integrity.
Other technology companies that are manufacturing in Pakistan include Tecno, Infinix, Itel, Vivo, Oppo, and Realme.
