OPPO, one of the fast-growing mobile phone brands in the world wants to set up its production plan in Kyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP), Pakistan.
According to Business Recorder, George Long, CEO OPPO Pakistan expressed the company’s keen interest in establishing a production unit during his meeting with Taimur Saleem Jhagra, Finance Minister of Kyber Pakhtunkhwa on Thursday.
The Chinese delegation discussed the details of the investment during their meeting and explained that the production unit will provide not only quality handsets for users but also employment opportunities for more than 400 people.
The smartphone maker took this decision to keep up with the local demands of the people. Taimur Saleem has welcomed the investment from OPPO and has assured complete cooperation from the government along with the provision of all possible facilities needed by the company.
The federal government has been eyeing the investment from Chinese smartphone firms ever since it offered them an opportunity to set up manufacturing plants in Pakistan. Previously, Tecno Mobile confirmed its plan to start manufacturing mobile phones in the country and recently Huawei also announced that it will be setting up its regional headquarters in Islamabad.
Local manufacturing of OPPO smartphones apart from providing more jobs will also help the company to offer competitive prices in the local market as the handsets won’t be objected to huge amounts of import taxes.
