  1. Quality education of IT is must to boost it’s exports. Efforts must be made to improve the standard of IT educational institutions. More and more quality such institutions must be established.
    Survey must be conducted to eliminate those institutions that are charging high fees from students and not providing quality educations. Emphasis should be on imparting quality IT education rather giving degrees.

  2. Tired of missing features you see others boasting about? Yeah, the official app can feel a bit vanilla sometimes. That’s where mods like KB WhatsApp come in, packing tons of cool extras the original version never dreamed of.

  3. Pakistan’s continual advancement in the IT sector underscores its increasing global importance as a leading supplier of top-notch IT services. Pakistan’s thriving presence in web development, web design, and other IT services further exemplifies its commitment to delivering cutting-edge solutions and contributing significantly to the global IT landscape.
