Samsung Electronics is building a new TV manufacturing plant in Pakistan. The project will be finalized in collaboration with R&R Industries, and the factory is scheduled to become functional in the final quarter of the year. The news was confirmed via Twitter by the Advisor to the Prime Minister of Pakistan, Abdul Razak Dawood.
According to the news, the building of Samsung’s new TV manufacturing plant was made possible in part by the Made-in-Pakistan policy, which provides incentives to bolster the domestic manufacturing industry.
Through its new TV factory in Pakistan, Samsung will be able to produce roughly 50,000 units every year, though it’s not clear what TV models will be made there, exactly.
Samsung will also build phones in Pakistan
Aside from the new TV manufacturing plant built in collaboration with R&R Industries, Samsung Electronics is also establishing a new mobile phone manufacturing line in the country.
This was announced by Lucky Motor Corporation a couple of months ago, the latter of which will repurpose its automotive plant at Port Qasim to assemble Samsung mobile devices. By 2022, 80% of all mobile phones sold in Pakistan could be manufactured locally, though not exclusively at the Port Qasim assembly plant.
