Pakistan Auto Development Policy (2016-2021)
Pakistan’s Auto Development Policy gives fruitful benefits to our country. The development of new vehicles and the entrance of new automakers in Pakistan’s local auto market increase production. In the coming year, Pakistan will be a country that can export its vehicle to other countries. Under the Auto Development Policy electric and hybrid vehicle production is also on the way and specific safety features are compulsory for every vehicle.
The Ministry of Science and Technology earlier announced that every vehicle will be manufactured under high safety standards and prices will never increase. The development of auto policy is a need of our country because we are very far behind from the international level. The development of safety features and the entrance of new automakers will also increase our economic growth.
