Project Description

According to the bank website, "the Project consists of the design, construction, and operation of a greenfield motor vehicle assembly plant, and the establishment of flagship dealerships in Karachi and /or Lahore (hereafter referred to as 'the Project'). The assembly plant will consist of a body shop, paint shop and assembly shop with inspection line, test course, motor pool, warehouses and utilities. The plant will be located on approximately 60 acres within the M3 Industrial City in Faisalabad in Punjab province. The plant initially proposes to assemble three different 'completely knocked down' (CKD) models based on current and anticipated demand in Pakistan. CKD kits and some component parts will be imported from South Korea, while other parts will be sourced locally. The number of component parts sourced locally is expected to increase over time as HNMPL plans to invest in the development of local supply chains."
