Pakistan Must Collab With China To Develop Its Human Resources
Tech experts in Pakistan believe that China, which is making great strides in high-end industries will be Pakistan’s IT development model for the foreseeable future.
Naveed Iftikhar, co-founder of Automcamp, said that China had made impressive strides in both human resource training and research and development (R&D). He emphasized that Pakistan must work more closely with China to develop its human resources and conduct more R&D.
China has a rich history of development of human resources and has made significant investments in education and training programs, which can serve as a model for Pakistan.
Tech experts in Pakistan believe that China, which is making great strides in high-end industries like artificial intelligence (AI), nanotechnology, quantum computing, and others, will be Pakistan’s IT development model for the foreseeable future.
According to renowned IT expert and creator of a 5G Internet observatory, Hussain Nadim, Pakistan places a heavy emphasis on physical development projects like infrastructure and dams. In contrast, he noted, “China dominates in R&D as it is a leader in AI, nanotechnology, quantum computing, and other industries.”
Hussain Nadim said, “Even with 1% of Chinese tech cooperation, we could do wonders in improving our technical capabilities. According to him, Pakistan must “de-securitize” the technology sector and put more of an emphasis on the business, commercial, and training aspects.
The future of Pakistan and the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor require technical and information technology corridors, he continued.
According to interview with Special Technology Zone Authority (STZA) Director of Planning and Regulatory Affairs Hamza Saeed Orakzai “Around two months ago, we opened the first China Pakistan Science and Technology Centre in Beijing. “We recently held a webinar in which about 5,000 delegations and technology companies from China took part.”
In order to properly align Pakistan with the two largest economies in the world, China and the US, he claimed that the country’s sizeable youth population should be forced to learn Chinese while also being required to speak English.
He claimed that STZA was saving Chinese businesses the hassle of visiting ten different government agencies in order to obtain licensure quickly so they could start operations in Pakistan.
These businesses can simply visit STZA, register digitally, and begin operating immediately, saving them the roughly six months it takes for a business to get past numerous regulatory hurdles and open for business. With the aid of STZA, more Chinese tech companies should soon enter the Pakistani tech market, according to Hamza Saeed.
