    Pakistan ranks fourth in world as IT service provider to overseas clients


    ISLAMABAD - Services Trade Development Council (STDC) during its maiden meeting noted that Pakistan is the fourth largest IT service provider to the overseas clients ranked only behind US, India and Philippines with over 200,000 Pakistani professionals working in this field.

    First meeting of the Services Trade Development Council took place in the Ministry of Commerce, which was chaired by the Engr. Khurram Dastgir Khan, Minister for Commerce. The Minister said that Ministry of Commerce would put in place the regulatory framework necessary for enhancing the exports of services from Pakistan. The Council will consult the State Bank of Pakistan to devise a suitable mechanism to facilitate these IT professionals to bring the wages of their work to Pakistan directly.

    In order to effectively market the Pakistani Technology industry, the Ministry of Commerce will enhance the participation of Pakistani IT companies in the international trade fares and exhibitions. The Government will also take measures to enhance the capacity of the free lancers working from their homes and small offices providing IT services to foreign clients. The Minister said that the Ministry will train its trade officers abroad to effectively market the Pakistani Technology industry.

    The meeting also agreed to take necessary steps to enhance tourism especially religious tourism in the country as Pakistan hosts remains of various ancient civilisations and religions for example Indus Valley Civilisation, Gandhara, pertaining to Hindus, Sikhs, Buddhists and other religions. The Council suggested taking measures to enhance intra-SAARC trade of services which is currently very low.

    Meeting was also attended by the representative of Ministry of Information Technology and Telecom, Secretary Trade Development Authority of Pakistan, representatives of Pakistan Software Houses Association for Information Technology, Pakistan International Freight Forwarders Association, Travel Agents Association of Pakistan, Insurance Association of Pakistan and Constructors Association of Pakistan.

    How many people want to bet that this will end up in the "Pakistani lies and denial thread" soon?

    @Neo -

    Noted from where exactly? Please provide the factual sources behind such notings.

    If you can claim a specific number like 4 in rankings and that too globally, then the source from which it is derived should also be mentioned.

    Re: Pakistan ranks fourth in world as IT service provider to overseas

    They want to enhance religious tourism in Pakistan to include Hindus, Sikhs, Buddhists, and other religions ? Seriously? The Taliban slaughters 145 people, including 132 children, all Muslim, in Peshawar and they are going to "enhance" religious tourism from other religions, including Hindus, Sikhs, and Buddhists. I don't know what they are going to do to "enhance" religious tourism to Pakistan, but it is very doubtful that it will be successful as long as the place remains infested with fanatical Muslim terrorists. I can just see the headlines now: "200 Japanese Buddhists Massacred on Bus Trip to Gandhara: Taliban claim responsibility: Attack was on idol-worshipping infidels". Yeah, lots of luck with "enhancing" religious tourism to Pakistan! :rolleyes:

    If further proof and reliable data is not forthcoming within 24 hours, this is going into the "Pakistani lies and denial thread".

    Re: Pakistan ranks fourth in world as IT service provider to overseas

    What brought me to this thread was...I meant IT means International Terrorism for Pakistan.. My first concern was how the heck they dropped 4 points on the rank?

    The article itself looks like written by a journalist with 12 year old vocabulary smoking Afghan weed.

    :rolleyes:

    Over 2 00 000 Professionals working and the industry is 4th largest. Defenitely weed!!

    Reality Check
    List of countries by exports - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    The total export ranking of Pakistan is 66 ..


    FROM 102 to 4Th Largest in 2 years time... Must be the Afghan weed.

    The news article posted by @Neo would go into the very famous "Pakistani lies and denial thread".

    Offshore Software Development – Gartner’s Top 30 Countries | CamiApp

    Gartner's Top 30 locations for offshore services in 2010, by region, are:

    Americas: Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Mexico, Panama and Peru.
    Asia/Pacific: Bangladesh, China, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Sri Lanka, Thailand and Vietnam.
    Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA): Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, Egypt, Hungary, Mauritius, Morocco, Poland, Romania, Russia, Slovakia, South Africa, Turkey and Ukraine.

    So are we to understand that just within 2-4 short years, Pakistan has improved so much in terms of stability and ease of doing IT offshoring business that out of nowhere it has overtaken Indonesia, Malaysia, Sri Lanka, Thailand and Vietnam. :rolleyes:

    The report is not right.

    Pakistan should be #1 in IT outsourcing and issuing over Phd/Degree/Diplomas as well.

    IT = International Terrorism.

    Stable electricity supply is important for data centers and IT stuff.
    You simply can't assume you can power your servers, data centers and office computers out of thin air just because a group of Madrassah mullahs in Pakistan proclaim so. @Neo

    Re: Pakistan ranks fourth in world as IT service provider to overseas

    What maybe we have missed is that overseas service IT providers maybe right, because a huge many from Pakistan would be the service support for the Overseas Terrorists and that cannot be officially countred.

    this report looks like, and reeks like the previous report where some fool said that pakistan exports multimillion dollars of weapons to international client.

    it sure looks like a propaganda to change the usual paki image in international arena.
