Daily Messenger - - Biz -

IS­LAM­ABAD: Among the ma­jor cat­a­lysts and en­ablers of CPEC’s sus­tained progress has been Pak­istan’s pre­ferred con­nec­tiv­ity part­ner Zong 4G, Gwadar Pro re­ported on Thurs­day.

In a ma­jor­ity of CPEC projects, Zong 4G is play­ing the role of pri­mary con­nec­tiv­ity provider, mainly be­cause of its un­ri­valled net­work foot­print and best-in-class high­speed data prod­ucts and ser­vices that have stim­u­lated dig­i­tal pen­e­tra­tion in the coun­try.

With over 36 Mil­lion sub­scribers the 100% owned sub­sidiary of China Mo­bile Com­mu­ni­ca­tions Cor­po­ra­tion, Zong 4G, has seen ex­po­nen­tial growth in the last few years to in­crease it by 10 folds to about 22%.

Be­ing the Chi­nese com­mu­ni­ca­tion com­pany in Pak­istan, Zong 4G has also helped foster eco­nomic ac­tiv­i­ties cre­at­ing 3,500 di­rect and over 200,000 in-di­rect em­ploy­ment op­por­tu­ni­ties in Pak­istan.

Zong 4G’s re­mark­able con­tri­bu­tion to CPEC is made pos­si­ble by the op­er­a­tor’s pas­sion for em­pow­er­ing Pak­istan and its peo­ple. Hav­ing a strong faith in the abil­ity of tech­nol­ogy to al­ter lives and el­e­vate life­styles, Zong has spear­headed the coun­try’s dig­i­tal trans­for­ma­tion for many years.

From be­ing the pioneers of 4G in Pak­istan, first suc­cess­ful 5G test­ing to MEC (Multi-ac­cess Edge Com­put­ing) and NB-IoT tri­als, Zong con­tin­ues to lead the in­dus­try through its tech­no­log­i­cal prow­ess.

“Most of us don’t even re­al­ize the level of in­ter­ac­tion that we will have with tech­nol­ogy in years to come, and we’re not even talk­ing about some dis­tant fu­ture,” shares Wang Hua, Chair­man and CEO Zong told Gwadar Pro.

“The things are chang­ing rapidly but we’re glad that Pak­istan is keeping its pace with tech­no­log­i­cal trans­for­ma­tion. The fact that Zong 4G has a key role to play in the na­tion’s progress to­ward Dig­i­tal Pak­istan is a mat­ter of sheer pride for us,” he adds.

“CPEC is mov­ing ahead at an im­pres­sive pace and we’re sat­is­fied with how we at Zong have helped in the re­al­iza­tion of projects with seam­less con­nec­tiv­ity that’s also af­ford­able,” shares Wang Hua.

“In­ter­est­ingly, CPEC and Dig­i­tal Pak­istan are will com­ple­ment each other. To­gether CPEC and Dig­i­tal Pak­istan are a uni­fied goal to which we’re march­ing with one en­abling the other,” he said, adding: "CPEC is bring­ing long due pros­per­ity and op­por­tu­ni­ties to the re­gions."

In essence, the pro­ject is all about con­nect­ing peo­ple and cre­at­ing link­ages. With mul­ti­ple projects and or­ga­ni­za­tions com­ing to­gether to build syn­er­gies, Zong is serv­ing them as an en­abler of the ini­tia­tive.

Geared to con­nect farflung ar­eas of Pak­istan, Zong has made in­vest­ments amount­ing to over $ 3 bil­lion in Pak­istan and is pro­vid­ing su­per-fast con­nec­tiv­ity along the route of the Cor­ri­dor.

The com­pany is act­ing as a key fa­cil­i­ta­tor by pro­vid­ing con­nec­tiv­ity along the length and breadth of CPEC and is help­ing var­i­ous projects con­nect seam­lessly.
