The IT high mark
No matter how late the Information Technology sector started emerging in Pakistan, the technology burst in the last decade has provided a new dream for the future of Pakistan. By tapping the common benefits of the Internet, the sector is now developing on better lines. This has also rendered the idea of digital divide as obsolete. More and more individuals in the country, professionals, students or people sitting at home, are benefiting from digital opportunities. The achievements of Pakistan’s IT industry, especially in 2011, show the willingness and efforts of the government and private sector to promote Information Technology in the country. In particular, the Government’s IT policy has proved to be an enabler towards an It-based future economy.
