Govt plans to set up SEZ for electric vehicles in Kamra

ISLAMABAD, June 21 (APP):Adviser to Prime Minister on Climate Change Malik Amin Aslam Friday said the government was planning to set up a Special Economic Zone (SEZ) dedicated for electric vehicles’ manufacturing with the assistance of Pakistan Air Force (PAF).

He made these remarks in a meeting held here with the global Electric Vehicles (EVs) manufacturers from China.

Amin, in a statement, said, “There is plenty of skilled to semi-skilled workforce in Kamra (Attock) the proposed site for the SEZ. Electric vehicles will not only bring reduction in environmental pollution but also minimize Pakistan’s oil import bill. Currently Pakistan has more electricity supply than demand while government is paying to the power producers in terms of capacity. This makes the situation conducive for introducing electrical vehicles in the transport sector.”
