Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan has showered praise on India during an event in Lahore saying that within 15 to 20 years, Indian tech exports boomed to $150 billion while Pakistan’s could reach only $2 billion.

The Pakistan Prime Minister had made the remarks while addressing the inauguration ceremony of the Lahore Technopolis, a special technology zone (STZ) on December 23.

Khan stressed that all businesses had faced a downturn amid the COVID-19 pandemic, but profits of tech companies like Google, Amazon, and others multiplied.

“Unfortunately, Pakistan lagged behind in the sector despite having ideal conditions, including a huge population of young people,” he said, adding that within 15 to 20 years, Indian tech exports boomed to $150 billion while Pakistan’s could reach only $2 billion,” The Express Tribune quoted the Pakistan prime minister as saying.

He said that Pakistan’s tech industry could help overcome the country’s current account deficit by boosting exports as well as addressing the issue of unemployment if the sector was incentivised and facilitated.

“The project would help provide incentives to the tech industry and bring ease to businessmen, in accordance with the government’s vision,” Khan said.
