Pakistan signs joint venture deal to manufacture Chromebooks


ISLAMABAD: The Pakistan government has entered into a letter of understanding (LoU) with a local Google partner and a foreign company to set up a state-of-the-art Chromebook assembly line through a joint venture.

“In a major breakthrough, National Radio Telecom Corporation (NRTC) Pakistan, Allied Australian, and Tech Valley Pakistan signed a letter of understanding (LoU) at the Ministry of Federal Education, paving the way for a groundbreaking joint venture to establish a state-of-the-art Chromebook assembly line in Pakistan,” the Press Information Department (PID) said on Tuesday.

Tech Valley Pakistan, a social enterprise and the official country partner of Google for Education, Google Workspace, and Google Cloud in Pakistan, is part of this initiative.

The joint venture aims to leverage the expertise, technology, and market insights of each party to establish a world-class assembly line at NRTC and Haripur City in the northwestern Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province, contingent upon regulatory approvals and infrastructure availability.

According to PID, this partnership is expected to boost the country’s technology sector, create new economic growth opportunities, and generate employment.

“The assembly line will have an initial production capacity of 500,000 Chromebooks per year, which will be scaled up to one million per year,” the statement added, noting the collaboration’s potential to transform Pakistan into a regional hub for technology manufacturing and innovation.
