ISLAMABAD, (UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 16th Jun, 2021 ) :President Dr Arif Alvi Wednesday said the IT sector in the country was growing fast and had the potential to boost its exports upto $5 billion by 2023.
The Information Technology (IT) sector, he said, had the great potential but unfortunately the vital field had been ignored in the past.
However, the present government was focusing on its development by establishing Special Technology Zones and giving tax concessions to the IT companies that would greatly contribute to the economic development of the country, he added.
He expressed these views while addressing at the 1st Lahore Chamber of Commerce and Industry IT Awards ceremony here at the Aiwan-e-Sadr.
He underscored the need for training the IT graduates and youth in the IT skills so as to meet the country's IT requirements.
While praising the government's successful policy with regard to containing COVID-19 pandemic, Dr Alvi said the government exercised its intellect and made wise decisions based on data and human compassion, which led to successfully containing the pandemic.
