Pakistan has become an exporter of 4G smartphones by sending the first-ever shipment tagged ‘Manufactured in Pakistan’ to the United Arab Emirates.
The first consignment of 5,500 mobile sets of 4G smartphones manufactured by Inovi Telecom was exported to the UAE on Friday.
However, the local manufacturers of mobile phone sets have stressed the need for an export supportive policy, allowing Pakistan to beat competitors in the Middle East region.
The Pakistan Telecommunication Authority on Saturday congratulated the company for the achievement and hoped the exports of smartphones would increase further.
“This is the result of concerted efforts for the development of the mobile device manufacturing ecosystem in the country,” said the regulator in a statement.
