“A person I knew told the prime minister about me and he forwarded an email to his reform team to contact me,” she said. “Over the next course of months, I was in contact with Mr. Jahangir Tareen and members of the federal cabinet. I even met the president before I met Prime Minister Imran and discussed the project,”

Furthermore, she added that Pakistani people living around the globe are willing to serve Pakistan and contribute their part in it.

“I spent 20 years outside Pakistan,” she said. “I went abroad with a very strong message about Pakistan. People say that I am politically connected to some people. That is not the case, I don’t have a relationship with anyone in the government. My objective is simple–I just want Pakistan to succeed,” she added.

Furthermore, she thanked prime Minister and Jahangir Khan Tareen for providing the opportunity to serve the motherland and payback to Pakistan. With everyone’s cooperation and help, Digital Pakistan’s vision will become a reality soon.

She said that she had identified and marked five crucial areas where there is a drastic need for the attention of the government. There is a need to build the “building block” and centralized planning moving from high to downstream. She said the first building block among those blocks is access and connectivity pillar.

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.

She then spoke about the second key area, which was upgrading the country’s digital infrastructure. She said, “Just like you need the road infrastructure in a country,

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.

    I’m a telecom engineer working in Govt project of United Kingdom on new Eligabeth line railway as T&C Engineer. I can help you in upgrading infrastructure within pakistan as the current one is not capable of supporting the technology. There is no proper or design of systems present in Pakistan which mass need desperately to come at front line along with Salman Ansari areas . A

    I have been closely looking at some of the universities of our country syllabus for BSc and MSc however they are lacking behind due to not being updated hence falling behind from countries . The communication system is still 40 year old due to corruptions however we can together make this possible.
