Today, Sharjeel Memon met with the bus company’s country manager, and it was decided that an 18-acre property would be used for a manufacturing plant that would open in 20 months and produce 500 buses annually.
Our first objective is to establish a manufacturing facility for public transportation, so we wanted to start the project as soon as possible, Memon stated.
Later, in a message from his Twitter, Sharjeel Memon said that he had a detailed meeting with a leading Chinese bus manufacturing company and they have agreed to start Pakistan’s first Intra city Bus manufacturing plant in Karachi.
