A meeting of the Cabinet Economic Co-ordination Committee chaired by the Finance Minister was convened on Wednesday. The Economic Co-ordination Committee will consider a six-point agenda.
Sources said that the meeting is likely to approve the mobile device manufacturing policy and approve the supply of wheat from Pasco to Azad Kashmir, while the Prime Minister will consider the financial package due to Corona.
According to sources, the policy guidelines for the sale of RLNG will be reviewed and a decision on the determination of petroleum levy on LPG is also expected, while the technical supplementary grant of the Ministry of Defense is also likely to be approved.
It may be recalled that on the direction of Federal Minister for IT and Telecommunications Syed Aminul Haq, a summary on smartphone manufacturing was sent to the Economic Co-ordination Committee. Amin-ul-Haq says the availability of low-cost smartphones in the country is a priority of the Ministry of IT.
The move will help boost foreign exchange and jobs through mobile exports.
It may be recalled that in February this year, the Engineering Development Board (EDB) had approved a mobile device manufacturing policy to encourage local investors.
Keep in mind that Pakistan is the third largest market for mobile phones in the world where 34 million mobile phones are sold annually.
Local mobile manufacturing will create about 200,000 jobs in the country and the country will be able to become part of the global supply chain.
