PM Imran Khan says digitalization is the future of Pakistan

Prime Minister Imran Khan said digitalization is the future of Pakistan and Information Technology (IT) plays a fundamental role in uplifting the less developed people and areas through connectivity.

Imran Khan was addressing a signing ceremony for Award of Contracts by Universal Service Fund (USF) for the provision of voice and high-speed mobile broadband data services in Balochistan and Sindh.

He said, “Today's agreement signed among USF, Ufone and Jazz very rightly conforms to our vision of bringing up less developed areas, especially the interior Sindh and Balochistan, which had been neglected in the past.”

Imran Khan said the ratio of poverty in Balochistan is very high and his government is paying special attention to the Information Technology sector. “Government’s priority is to uplift the backward areas,” he added.

“In Pakistan, private hospitals have been given more priority than government hospitals,” he added.

The Prime Minister said the education system in our country has not remained on the right track and Hunza Valley currently has more literary ratio than the rest of Pakistan.

“In the world, where development does not occur on the basis of justice, it affects the society,” Prime Minister Imran Khan said. Prime Minister Imran Khan said Pakistan was developing rapidly in the 60s.

He said modern technology is of paramount importance in the fifth industrial revolution. 

Imran Khan said Pakistan can introduce a virtual education system in remote areas to equip our youth with knowledge and skill and mobile phones can be used for adult literacy.
