STAFF REPORT ISB: China Mobile Pakistan (CMPak), Pakistans first and only 4G mobile service and subsidiary of China Mobile Communications Corporation, has congratulated Pakistan particularly Anusha Rehman, Minister of State for IT and Telecom, and Dr. Syed Ismail Shah, Chairman, PTA, upon winning a seat in the International Telecommunication Unions (ITU) Council.
The electoral procedure to select the 48 members for the ITU Council has recently taken place at the 19th ITU Plenipotentiary Conference held in Busan, South Korea.
“This is certainly a proud moment for the government as well as all Pakistanis. Pakistans ICT industry has made fast progress and has set a positive example in the region by enabling benefits of modern communication technologies in an efficient, safe, easy and affordable manner,” said Dr. Fan YunJun, CEO, Zong.
The membership is likely to allow Pakistan to learn from the international best practices and would eventually fuel the growth momentum of the countrys ICT sector. As a result, all telecom operators will benefit by developing agility to provide next generation telecom services.
