This was revealed by the Advisor to the Prime Minister on Commerce and Investment, Abdul Razak Dawood, in a post on Twitter on Wednesday.

According to details, the plant is expected to become functional by the 4th Quarter of 2021 and is forecast to produce around 50,000 units every year.

Dawood also remarked that the plant’s establishment is a “vindication” of the Ministry of Commerce’s “Make in Pakistan” policy for the purpose of industrialization.

A few months ago, in July, Samsung announced they would start assembling phones in Pakistan by the end of this year.

The South Korean tech giant is working on a joint venture with Lucky Motor Corporation (LMC) — a subsidiary of Lucky Cement — for this ambitious project.

The cellphone production plant would be established in Karachi’s Bin Qasim Industrial Park (BQIP) at LMC’s existing plant.

Apart from Samsung, several Chinese tech companies have started establishing their production bases in the South Asian nation in recent months.

Later in August, Vivo declared its intentions to build a production base in the Industrial Estate of Faisalabad.

Vivo has also invested $10 million for the plant’s establishment.
