Google to open offices in Pakistan soon

The tech giant Google has decided to formally initiate its operations from Pakistan. In this regard the company is planning to open its offices in the country soon.

This was revealed by Senator Afnanullah Khan, member of the Senate Finance Committee, while speaking to media recently.

In addition to opening its offices in the country Google is also interested in offering 15,000 scholarships to Pakistani citizens after starting operations in Pakistan.

Earlier in September, Google launched Career Certificates to offer flexible learning paths for all Pakistanis to enable learners to develop their knowledge and acquire digital skills for jobs. In April, a Google delegation visited the office of the Special Technology Zones Authority – STZA in Islamabad along with leaders of Tech Valley Pakistan. The visiting delegates were briefed about Special Technology Zones being developed and the special fiscal and monetary incentives, like 10-year tax and duty holidays for companies.
