Transformation and turning around of Pakistan’s economy

Engineering Post Report

At the heart of the transformation and turnaround of Pakistan’s economy lies the vision of a Digital Pakistan. The advantage of having a young and abundant human  capital base positions Pakistan to convert  this resource into one of its most valuable assets.

The continuous growth of Pakistan’s Information Technology (IT) industry has resulted in a US $ 4 billion market size. However, the pace needs to be accelerated further   by having the right interventions holistically  to fully utilize the  available potential available in the IT industry of the country.

In the overall development programme, the Digital Pakistan initiative quite obviously lays a strong foundation for public service delivery as well  as encourages further improvement  of the connectivity infrastructure in the country to further spur  the development of  innovative products and services using Information Communication  Technology (ICT) and thus benefitting  all segments of the society.
