A Chinese company gets a liquor licence in Pakistan

It is obvious that Pakistan and China are good neighbors. China has been seen standing by Pakistan in every way. Projects like the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) and China’s vaccine donation to Pakistan are living evidence. Aside from that, according to recent interesting reports, a Chinese firm has been granted a liquor manufacturing license in Pakistan. According to certain sources, the information is true. The Securities and Exchange Commission of Pakistan (SECP) registered Hui Coastal Brewery and Distillery Limited on April 30, 2020, with a Hub (Balochistan) address.

For the purpose of accomplishing this task, the company was launched in a partnership deal with Balochistan at Lasbela Industrial Estate Development Authority. The Excise, Taxation, and Anti-Narcotics Department in Balochistan gave license to this Chinese company in order to start making liquor in the region. 

China has a long tradition of manufacturing different forms of liquor, but this is their first time doing so in Pakistan. The organization is well-known for producing famous brands, and introducing two new companies in Pakistan is a new experience for them. This well-known company will definitely develop a foothold in Pakistan as well. The whole process, from processing to packing, necessarily requires a number of procedures, all of which will be carried out at the company’s Lasbela factory.

Due to the prohibition of alcohol use in our religion, these forms of practices have only been practiced by minorities in Pakistan until now. It’s unclear if it’s just for minorities or whether Muslims will now consume it. What are your thoughts about the news?
