Samsung has set up a plant in Karachi’s Korangi Industrial Area in collaboration with R&R Industries Pvt Ltd.
The collaboration will create more than 700 jobs in Pakistan due to the vast nature of this project.
It is expected that the business revenue of the project will approximately reach Rs5 billion per annum and an annual target of producing 50,000 TV units.
