Minister stresses need for technological advancements in Pakistan


ISLAMABAD: Information Minister Chaudhary Fawad Hussain has expressed confidence that China and Pakistan together will emerge as leading players in the field of technology.

Addressing the Huawei Pakistan Mobile Summit on Monday, the information minister pointed out that Pakistan and China have always remained great friends.

“However, under the leadership of President Xi Jinping, the whole dynamics of this relationship has changed, as both countries now enjoy healthy strategic, economic and technological relations.

He said the future belongs to technology and Pakistan has to embrace modern technology in order to move forward and keep pace with the world.

“We have to support our technology companies and facilitate our youth to acquire scientific and technological education,” he asserted.

Fawad Chaudhary recalled that there was a time when Pakistan used to locally manufacture transmitters and radio equipment but now everything was being imported.

The information minister said, “We have decided to establish a media university where students will be imparted with education in line with the latest technological trends in the field of media.”
