Federal Minister for Science and Technology, Fawad Chaudhry, has invited Tesla’s owner Elon Musk to establish a factory of electric vehicles in Pakistan.
Chaudhry took to Twitter and tagged Musk in response to a news story shared by Al-Arabiya regarding an announcement by the US automaker to build half a million electric vehicles a year at its future factory outside Berlin.
In a tweet, the federal minister invited the tech mogul to set up a factory in Pakistan, highlighting several incentives the country has to offer.
“Dear Elon Musk your next destination may be Pakistan where 68 per cent of world population lives within 3.5 hours flight radius from Islamabad,” tweeted Fawad.
“We offer ten years zero tax facility and custom free import for factory setup, no other country may offer, plus we are the world’s 3rd biggest freelance software exporters,” he further said.
