Web Desk — Giving us a glimpse of its potential, Pakistan’s IT sector has shown consistent growth over the last few years.
Umair Azam, the founder and CEO of Integration Xperts, said, “Support from the government and the academia towards improving ease of doing business, tax concessions, promoting research and development, and producing skilled human resources can do wonders for Pakistan.”
Umair expressed these views during a panel discussion titled ‘IT Exports & Way Forward’ at the Global Digital Summit 2023 held in Islamabad recently.
Umair further said that the ICT services exports including telecommunication, computer, and information services, reached US$2.6 billion in FY22, from US$ 2.1 billion in FY21.
He hoped Pakistan’s IT exports can increase by many folds by focusing on cloud deployments, and investment in newer technologies like IoT and Artificial Intelligence.
CEO of Integration Xperts added that in order to lock the brain drain, there was a need to develop and train human resources and provide them with better opportunities in Pakistan. According to Umair, there is immense potential in Pakistan’s IT industry and its IT exports can increase beyond expectations by 2025.
