PM Imran Khan’s Speech at Digital Pakistan Ceremony. Digitizing Pakistan is important for the youth as the country as exciting times are ahead of the country, Prime Minister Imran Khan said during the Digital Pakistan campaign’s inauguration ceremony on Thursday.
The’ Digital Pakistan ‘ project is part of the digitization program of the Government of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) aimed at incorporating state-of-the-art public welfare technologies.
“The world has made great strides in digitization, but Pakistan is lagging behind,” the prime minister said. “Unfortunately, because of corruption, Pakistan has lagged behind.”
He said Pakistan would use its youth population, which was one of the largest in the world, through initiatives such as the digitization program.
“Women can also secure jobs through digitization, helping to curb bribery and making transparency key,” he said.
The prime minister said corruption always started from the top, and now Pakistan will see better days as a government that didn’t tolerate it was in place.
“As prime minister, when I took over the reins, there was hardly any department that wasn’t in defeat,” he said. “I tried to shift my attention to other fields, but as prime minister, I was forced to focus solely on the current account deficit.
Prime Minister Imran said he said in his first speech’ Ghabrana Nahi Hai’ when he was elected prime minister.
“After that speech, many people panicked,” he said as the audience laughed. “Now I’m asking you not to worry as we’re heading in the right direction.”
The Prime Minister said that the fiscal and economic policies of Pakistan are appreciated by international agencies.
The campaign was carried out by the Ministry of Information and Technology (MoIT) in Digital Pakistan. The mission of the MoIT was to digitize all correspondence between offices of government.
In three months, the IT ministry had been instructed to complete the task.
