The wheels of progress are turning in Pakistan’s digital landscape. The Ministry of Information Technology and Telecom (MoIT&T) is crafting a brand new Digital Pakistan Policy 2024, aiming to propel the country forward in the ever-evolving world of technology.

This new policy, dubbed “Digital Pakistan Policy 2024,” comes six years after its predecessor. The 2018 version played a crucial role in kickstarting Pakistan’s digital transformation journey. However, the digital world moves at a rapid pace, and the need for an update has become clear.

The MoIT&T isn’t going it alone. They’re taking a collaborative approach, actively seeking input from various stakeholders. Industry experts, technology companies, universities, and even civil society organizations have all been involved in shaping this policy. This ensures the final document reflects the needs and expectations of a broad range of voices.
