Information Technology (IT) is not just a buzzword. It is
the future and the strategic weapon to survive in the fast changing world also
being influenced by the IT. Pakistan is much behind as compared to its immediate
neighbour. To catch-up, the country needs immediate attention to address the key issues,
i.e. availability of hardware and software, development of human resources, expansion of
communication network and rationalization of tariff. On top of all a pragmatic IT policy
to steer the smooth sail.
