PAKISTAN’S MINISTRY OF INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY AND TELECOMMUNICATION (MoITT) COLLABORATES WITH OLX TO PROMOTE TECHNOLOGY SECTOR

SHARE:


Pakistan is one of the countries where sharing economy is growing and platforms like OLX are facilitating the process by connecting people who want to share, sell or buy items. The Ministry of Information Technology & Telecommunication has taken notice of this trend and signaled a strong interest in facilitating the growth of the sharing economy as part of a bigger push to encourage the growth of the tech industry in Pakistan.

During a recent visit to the OLX regional headquarters in Dubai, Dr. Khalid Maqbool Siddiqui, Federal Minister, MoITT and Mr. Zeeshan Bokhari, Director General, MoITT met with Mr. Bilal Bajwa, CEO – OLX Pakistan to discuss the landscape around sharing economy.

Dr. Khalid Maqbool Siddiqui and Mr Zeeshan Bokhari met with some of the Pakistani expatriates working at OLX in Dubai and listened to their stories while promising them that the government of Pakistan wants to help. During this visit, the officials from the IT ministry also invited OLX for further conversation as part of a task force being developed around the sharing economy and the growth of IT sector.

Dr. Khalid Maqbool Siddiqui, Federal Minister, MoITT said, “A bend in the road is not the end of the road until and unless you fail to make a turn. Pakistan is at such crossroads where we have a unique opportunity to take advantage. Tech brands like OLX can provide their specialized support to the government to bring impact at a greater scale. The IT ministry is planning many interesting things in the future with companies like OLX, which will have a big impact in educating, employing and empowering our youth and growing the technology industry in Pakistan”

On this occasion, expressing his views, Mr. Bilal Bajwa, CEO, OLX Pakistan said, “We see massive growth potential in Pakistan and are excited by this outreach from the government. As the #1 marketplace in Pakistan, OLX is activating a massive dormant local economy in the form of household and business items the value of which goes into billions of rupees. In addition, OLX is training the next generation of technology workers and entrepreneurs that we hope will help Pakistan become a global tech powerhouse!”

In addition, Mr. Zeeshan Bokhari, DG MoITT summarized the meeting by saying “There are businesses within a business and there are opportunities within an opportunity. The sharing economy is a great example where we can unlock big opportunities by working with businesses like OLX. Such business and government partnership can help propel the IT industry in Pakistan forward and we invite OLX to share their ideas and work with us for the betterment of the IT industry.”

Sharing economy is observing a hockey stick growth pattern globally with the launch of ride sharing, room sharing, and other such services. One of the main catalysts to this growth is the widespread technology apps adoption in emerging markets such as Pakistan. It is connecting people in amazing new ways and unlocking a dormant economy worth billions of dollars and providing meaningful livelihood to thousands of people.
