STAFF REPORT ISB: While governments in Europe, US and rest of the developed world have fully realized the potential of ICTs in fueling economic growth, creating high value jobs and improving efficiencies for businesses, the lax view that ICT are just a tool for connectivity is still prevalent in many developing countries especially Pakistan.

The WEF in its Global Information Technology report 2014 has also raised concerns about Pakistans ICT growth, ranking it at a lowly 105 out of 144 countries reviewed. The report, which accesses how countries harness ICT to deliver competitiveness and well-being, has highlighted Pakistans need to ensure technology affordability to businesses and individual consumers. Otherwise, this negative trend may put Pakistans ICT competitiveness in jeopardy unless the right investments are made in ICT, skills and innovation.
