ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan on Thursday said digitising Pakistan is crucially important for the progress of the country’s youth.
Addressing the inauguration ceremony of the ‘Digital Pakistan’ campaign here at the federal capital, the premier said the world has been progressing while Pakistan has largely lagged behind. “Digital Pakistan will be the government’s utmost priority. It will unleash the potential of the youth. Pakistan has the second biggest population of youth and it can be turned into strength through digital work,” he added.
PM Khan further added, “women can contribute to this sector as well and gain jobs.”
‘Digital Pakistan’ campaign is a part of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government’s digitisation programme aimed at introducing the latest technologies for public welfare. It was executed by the Ministry of Information Technology (MoIT). The MoIT has been tasked with digitising all correspondence between the government offices.
The IT ministry had been told to complete the task within three months.
