Pakistan has received large orders for face masks from the US and European countries, Adviser to Prime Minister for Commerce and Investment Abdul Razak Dawood advisor told on Thursday.
“I have received information that some exporters have obtained large orders for face masks from US, Canada and Europe. This is a major breakthrough and I congratulate them for this achievement,” said Dawood in a tweet post.
The SAPM added that the latest move is part of the government’s diversification policy into new segments. “This has been achieved by the exporters through their own efforts. I’m sharing this information with others to encourage them to seek more orders from different parts of the world,” he added.
Dawood earlier said the government prioritized the establishment of Special Economic Zones ( SEZs) to attract foreign direct investment ( FDI) and technology transfer into the country.
“The SEZs are primarily focused on industrialization that result in export promotion, import substitution, transfer of technologies and employment generation, which are the primary targets of our government as well,” he told.
