The Prime Minister’s Laptops Scheme initiated by the Pakistan Muslim League (N) was a popular offer of its time.
As many as 300,000 laptops were distributed amongst youth all over Pakistan. The scheme was held every year for students enrolled in public and semi-public educational institutes of Pakistan.
The laptops were produced by Haier Ruba manufacturing facility in Lahore.
However, Imran Khan’s government has put an end to the offer for once and for all. The move broke the hearts of many students who were hoping that PTI would continue the laptop scheme.
But seems like the Prime Minister has something even huge in store for the students of Pakistan.
Yesterday in a tweet, CEO of Haier Javed Afridi revealed that Prime Minister Imran Khan has lauded the company’s venture to strengthen IT industry and manufacturing laptops made in Pakistan a reality.
He further added that something revolutionary is coming soon and students will be able to achieve these laptops at affordable prices.
Bringing you something revolutionary really soon. Prime Minister @ImranKhanPTI appreciated our next venture as it has paved a way for the furtherance of our IT industry and will make laptops accessible to every student at affordable prices since they will be #MadeInPak. 💻🇵🇰 pic.twitter.com/GAMPbX3Aia

Haier is the first company in Pakistan to assemble laptops. The move reduced the cost of Haier’s laptops as they were produced in their own manufacturing unit in Pakistan.
