Fawad Chaudhry: International companies soon to start production of solar panels in Pakistan

Minister of Science and Technology announces the production of solar panels in Pakistan, marking a much-needed shift towards renewable energy source in Pakistan.

Federal Minister for Science & Technology Fawad Chaudhry has announced that the world’s two largest producers of solar panels are embarking on setting up the production plants in Pakistan. While China’s second-largest producers of electronic batteries will soon be setting up production plants in Pakistan to produce Lithium batteries. Even the buses running on Lithium batteries will be produced in Pakistan.

The setup of solar panel production plants in Pakistan is expected to reduce the cost of alternative energy sources in Pakistan, scaling down the dependence on oil for energy production, and help address the adverse climatic effects from the burning of oil and other petroleum products for energy production.

Fawad Chaudhry, who was recently on a six-day official visit to China, informed his followers via a tweet on Monday. The social media users hailed the announcement and counted on the benefits of ramping up the renewable energy sources in Pakistan.

On Friday, Chaudhry lauded the UAE government’s plan to launch the world’s first university of Artificial Intelligence and expressed the interest of Pakistan’s government to collaborate on the project. The Mohammed Bin Zayed University of Artificial Intelligence will open its doors on September 2020.

“UAE was the first country which established a proper ministry for artificial intelligence in 2017,” the minister told an Arab news outlet in a phone interview from China. Adding that “We have a lot to learn from the UAE. This AI university is an excellent initiative.”

During his visit to China, he also toured the traditional Chinese medicine laboratory at Huanan University in Changsha in China. He later shared the pictures of his interaction with the 400 Pakistani students studying at the varsity. He also lauded the 150 Pakistani girls among the students who had traveled to China for education. Sharing his excitement on Twitter, Minister Chaudhry added that he received a rock-star welcome from the Pakistani students.
