The era of Xiaomi phones being made in Pakistan has officially started. Xiaomi has officially started the production of its smartphones in Lahore, Pakistan. This is huge news for Pakistani consumers. The Chinese brand will benefit a lot from this step. They will escape the import duties and taxes. Consequently, they will be able to keep their prices down. Moreover, the end consumer will enjoy the benefits of value-for-money devices.

The inauguration took place on 4th March at the factory located in Quaid-e-Azam Industrial Estate, Kot Lakhpat, Lahore. AirLink Communication Ltd. is one of the leading manufacturers, retailers, and distributors in Pakistan. They have further cemented their status by beginning the production of Xiaomi smartphones
Mr. Muzaffar Hayat Piracha, CEO of Select Technologies, said during the event, ” Our partnership with Xiaomi is wonderful news not only for the company but also for Pakistan. Xiaomi is a global tech giant and market leader in innovative technology which is not only limited to smartphones. This venture will open many avenues as smartphone manufacturing is the first step towards a bigger goal.” Moreover, he also stated that this step will further enhance exports of Pakistan as well.
This initiative will help the Pakistani smartphone industry hugely. Firstly, there will be more job opportunities. Furthermore, prices will go down and users will benefit from better value. Xiaomi will be able to grasp the market with a tighter grip. Moreover, they can also export phones from Pakistan which will help the economy immensely. This is a huge step forward in the right direction. I hope more brands follow suit So we can enjoy great devices at great price points and more importantly, made in Pakistan.
