The IT high mark

Enterprise - - Editor's Desk - Zuhair Aqeel Lahore

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.
