A soldier posted in Siachen gets one opportunity a week to speak to his family members,” she said. “I want to ensure that whenever he connects to his family via a video call, he is able to do so without any issues.
The second area she identified is the up-gradation of the country’s digital infrastructure.

Pakistan needs a digital infrastructure,” she said.
To advance in the tech world, we need to have a digital infrastructure in place.
Going ahead she identified the third pillar as E-governance. She said this government had got elected on the promise of transparency. So, digitizing the government processes is the best solution for making government transparent. She said, today people had to face a lot of depression and tension in order to get land records. In order to facilitate those people, we have to digitize the process. Furthermore, she says Pakistan procures good of worth more than 3 trillion rupees and we can save a remarkable amount of money by digitizing the processes.
The fourth pillar she identified is digital training and skill. She said they’re a lot of universities in Pakistan that are not teaching the technology to students. Furthermore, when our student gets graduated from any university he/she is not able to compete with the global economic model and requirements.
The fifth and last key pillar of Digital Pakistan is Innovation and Entrepreneurship. She said the government needs to provide a suitable and flourishing environment for entrepreneurs and innovators. Further, there is a drastic need to attract the billion-dollar worth companies in Pakistan by providing them a lucrative environment and policies.
