On Saturday, Hammad Azhar, Minister of Industries and Production announced that the South Korean tech giant Samsung is thinking to set up a “smartphone assemble plant in Pakistan”.

Azhar broke the news through a tweet and wrote,

“Smartphone production in Pak is multiplying following DIRBS implementation and Mobile Policy launched recently. Met with the Samsung Pakistan MD and CEO.”

He went on to write,

“They appreciated both policies and are now actively considering setting up a smartphone assembly plan in Pakistan.”

As per the Ministry of Industries and Production declaration, the policy of manufacturing mobile devices had been approved by the federal cabinet. With the consultations of concerned stakeholders and the Engineering Development Board, the policy was made.

This legislation will help the Pakistani authorities to put an end on the mobile phone smuggling and will create opportunities for the local engineers.

It is pertinent to mention here that in June 2020, Pakistan had approved its first-ever mobile device manufacturing policy.
