Prime Minister Imran Khan, who was the chief guest, said his government was working hard to improve the automotive industry and the economy.
“The arrival in Pakistan of the British motor company MG is evidence that the economy of Pakistan has moved in the right direction,” PM Imran Khan said. He added that the business would play a crucial role in Pakistan’s growth. He said these rechargeable and environmentally friendly vehicles are of particular significance in the world.
The Prime Minister said the government of the PTI will continue its efforts to further improve the auto industry and called the launch “encouraging” in view of the ongoing pandemic coronavirus situation.
Pakistan has tremendous potential for excellence, he said, and the government now aims to focus all its energies on bringing unprecedented progress to each sector of Pakistan.
Javed Afridi, who helped carry to Pakistan the British motor company, praised the policies of the incumbent government. He said the company’s launch in Pakistan at the beginning of the new year showed that the country has a business-friendly climate. He said the launch would completely transform Pakistan’s auto industry. He shared the development on Twitter and said that “JW-SEZ Group is committed to making Pakistan a leader in the worldwide EV revolution along with SAIC engines.”
As part of the country’s vision of moving to green and clean energy, Pakistan’s government recently announced new incentives to promote the use of electric vehicles (EVs) and to convert 30 percent of cars to electric vehicles by 2030. In Pakistan, the company has received an especially warm welcome.
