Pakistan can increase its IT exports by a wide margin if it focuses on providing training to its youth on how they can form groups or companies rather than operating as individuals to compete more efficiently in the bidding process.
This was stated by E-commerce Gateway Pakistan President Dr Khursheed Nizam in a press conference held in connection with upcoming 19th IT Exhibition Telecom Conferences (ITCN).
"Pakistan has factories in shape of educated minds which can bring foreign reserves," he said. "Our target is to take IT exports from $1 billion to $5 billion in the next three years along with increasing the share of e-commerce to 80percent domestically and 20percent cross-border."
He added that non-technological exports, which were around $23 billion, could be uplifted to $50 billion if the government played the role of an enabler.
