Foxconn, whose official name is Hon Hai Precision Industry Co Ltd and is best known as a major supplier to Apple Inc , said in October it aimed to provide components or services to 10% of the world's EVs by 2025-2027.
The report comes weeks after Reuters reported that Apple was moving forward with self-driving car technology and was aiming to produce a passenger vehicle that could include its own breakthrough battery technology as early as 2024.
“VIVO [Chinese smartphone manufacturer] is purchasing land to establish a mobile manufacturing plant in Pakistan, whereas Samsung [South Korea technology giant] is actively drawing its feasibility but has yet to reach a conclusion, but we are optimistic,” said Azhar.
Omar Ayub said that by 2023 Pakistan will generate 75-80pc of its electricity from its local sources including nuclear, hydro, and coal power, which will reduce the electricity tariffs for the end customers.
The opening of a charging station in Islamabad will help encourage electric vehicles as future transportation in the country, says Babar.
