Samsung, the world’s largest smartphone maker, is set to assemble mobile phones in Pakistan by December 2021 in a joint venture with Lucky Group, it emerged on Friday.

“I congratulate Lucky Group and Samsung on entering into a JV (joint venture) to manufacture smartphones in Pakistan,” Federal Minister for Energy Hammad Azhar wrote on his official Twitter handle.

He said that these positive developments are evidence of the success of the Device Identification Registration and Blocking System (DIRBS) system that eliminated the smuggling of phones and was then followed up by the mobile manufacturing policy last year.
