‘Pakistan to establish its own electromedical industry’, Minister Fawad Chaudhary
If such developments continue, the country’s trade deficit will improve.
Pakistan is looking forward to establishing an electromedical industry of its own. According to the Federal Minister of Science and Technology Fawad Chaudhary, the industry would save billions of dollars that are spent on imports on a yearly basis.

The Prime Minister handed over locally made ventilators to National Disaster Management Authority (NDMA), recently according to the Minister. He further said that three manufacturing facilities will make local ventilators in the country. Out of these three, one is owned by the state and two by the private sector. Moreover, Pakistan Engineering Council selected four out of the 57 ventilator designs that they received.
Due to all this, Pakistan is expected to save about $1 billion on imports. If such developments continue, the country’s trade deficit will improve. It will be advanced enough to make electromedical facilities locally.
