The Adviser to Prime Minister of Pakistan for Commerce and Investment, Abdul Razak Dawood took on Twitter to announce this achievement.

PTA congratulates the company for this landmark achievement. This is the result of concerted efforts for the development of a mobile device manufacturing ecosystem in the country. The successful implementation of the Device Identification Registration and Blocking System (DIRBS) and enabling government policies including the Mobile Manufacturing Policy have created a favourable environment for mobile device manufacturing in Pakistan.

As a part of this policy, Inovi Telecom Pvt. Ltd was issued mobile manufacturing authorization by PTA on 9th April 2021. Within 4 months, the company has managed to achieve exporting ‘Manufactured in Pakistan’ phones.

Just recently, the Engineering Device Board, a division of the Ministry of Industry and Production, approved the mobile device manufacturing policy last year, after which 21 companies received the green signal for mobile phone manufacturing from March to June.

According to the EDB list, these factories include Nokia, Oppo, Infinix, Swift Biz Solutions (Digit), Techno, iTel, WAV, Alpha, RealMe, Vigotel, D-Code, CallMe, Excel, Spice, TCL, and Alcatel.
