This is to ensure that the ‘Make-in-Pakistan’ policy remains prominent in the country which would then encourage import substitution, development, and promotion of local businesses, and generate value-added exports.
Moreover, Samsung also announced that it had entered into an agreement with Lucky Motor Corporation in order to commence local production as soon as possible. Production is expected to start in December.
