#Pakistan Finally Adopts International Safety Standards for the Auto Industry

Protection and safety standards are of paramount importance among automakers in all major markets these days. In the Pakistani market, even the most basic features, such as a driver-side airbag, have long been considered a luxury. The price-tags of the vehicles have been on a steep climb for quite some time, with little to no emphasis on the safety standards, until recently.

As per reports from various sources, Pakistan has finally reached a consensus on a United Nations agreement regarding, “Adoption of Harmonized Technical Nations Regulations for Wheeled Vehicles, Equipment and Parts which can be fitted and/or used on Wheeled Vehicles and the Conditions for Reciprocal Recognition of Approvals Granted on the Basis of these UN Regulations, approved at Geneva on 20 March 1958.”

The said agreement came into effect in Pakistan on 24th of April, 2020. However, the news of this development reached the Ministry of Industries and Production on the 18th of June from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, after it having been informed of the said development by Pakistan Mission New York.

During the year 2016, the Government of Pakistan had come to a realization that the cars being manufactured in Pakistan are far behind in terms of safety standards as compared to similar cars being sold in other markets. It was for that reason that the Auto Development Policy (ADP) 2016-21 was envisioned by the government

'Made in Pakistan' ventilators, called PakVent1, are now ready for operational usage. A major leap in technology undertaken by Pakistan in such short interval of time. ??

Pakistan now among few countries producing their own #Ventilators in accordance with European Union Standards.

‘Made in #Pakistan’ ventilators to be handed over to #NDMA. Pakistan is now among those countries which manufacture complex #medical_equipment. ??

@Zeeman , can you post some data on CPEC projects. All I see are Infrastructure and power projects. What about setting up production or atleast assembly. My understanding was a lot of Chinese manufacturers would atleast set up some sort of final assembly or production here for export from Gwader?
