PM’s advisor on commerce, Abdul Razzak Dawood, has revealed that Pakistan will begin exporting mobile phones in January. Initially, two Chinese companies will export mobile phones, the Commerce Advisor said. Both Chinese companies have set up assembly lines in the country, he added. Furthermore, Samsung was offered two times to open a factory in Pakistan, but refused.
Additionally, after seeing Chinese mobile phone factories established, Samsung approached the government seeking incentives for setting up a factory there. Lucky Cement Group, however, signed an agreement with Samsung Gulf Electronics a few weeks ago to manufacture Samsung smartphones in Pakistan.
