OPPO plans to export 5 mn smartphones from Pakistan every year
No doubt it’s a good initiative as local manufacturing will reduce the prices of smartphones for local customers which will further enhance the mobile phone industry in Pakistan. The growth in the mobile phone industry will create multiple job opportunities in this industry as well as the industries which are associated with them and are operational in Pakistan.
Other than this, Airlink communications also successfully exported the first batch of 1,500 locally manufactured devices to United Arab Emirates (UAE), making Pakistan the exporter of 4G smartphones. Mobile manufacturing started in Pakistan after the Mobile device manufacturing policy was approved last year and had many incentives for the manufacturing industry.
