What is the Global Information Technology Report?


For technologists, industry watchers and citizens of a country, World Economic Forum’s Global Information Technology Report holds immense value and is eagerly awaited by investors & decision makers alike.  This report basically outlines how great (or bad) a country is doing in adopting technology in making people’s lives better by investing in infrastructure, economic potential, human resources, competitiveness level and more in order to arrive at its conclusions.

In short, it looks at data from 144 countries, and tracks how far the country has progressed by adopting technology in fulfilling the social, economic, academic and lifestyle needs of its population. This relates to both the private sector and the government’s efforts to invest in technology to enhance competitiveness and economic progress.

Information and Communication Technology (ICT) is important for sustained economic growth and stable job creation, so that the youth of the country are not found without opportunities as they enter the job market. ICT has also revolutionized how businesses are done, cutting down operating costs and time, increasing a company’s competitiveness level across the board and in the industry.


Pakistan’s Global Ranking in ICT over the years


Information technology in Pakistan is a growing and rising industry that has a lot of potential. Matters relating to the IT industry are overseen and regulated by the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting of the Government of Pakistan. The IT industry is regarded as a successful sector of Pakistan economically, even in financial crisis. The government of Pakistan has given numerous incentives to IT investors in the country during the last decade, this resulted in the development of the IT sector. In the years 2003-2005 the country’s IT exports saw a rise of about fifty percent and amounted a total of about 48.5 million USD. The World Economic Forum, assessing the development of Information and Communication Technology in the country ranked Pakistan 111th among 144 countries in the Global Information Technology report of 2014.

As of 2011, Pakistan has over 20 million internet users and is ranked as one of the top countries that have registered a high growth rate in internet penetration. Overall, it has the 27th largest population of internet users in the world. In the fiscal year 2012-2013, the Government of Pakistan aims to spend Rs. 4.6 billion on information technology projects, with emphasis on e-government, human resource and infrastructure development.

What do these numbers mean for Pakistan over the past 3 years?

The World Economic Forum has placed Pakistan 97th in a list of 143 countries it evaluated for business and innovation environment in its Global Information Technology report 2015.

Lets celebrate the good news first. In a span of just 1 year, Pakistan turned the tables around, rating significantly better than in the preceding years in ICT readiness and progress.
