I would also like to re-iterate some of the comments, which I mentioned, so these are considered when IT policy is being finalised.
Content is briefly touched upon once or twice in the IT Policy Draft. My view is that without local language content uptake/dissemination of knowledge to rural parts of Pakistan will not be possible. Greater emphasis should be given to local/regional languages content development and dessimination.
- Bi-Fircation of IT Policy
PITB’s IT Policy is incorporating initiatives relating to both Government and private sector interconnected broad policy objectives. These are two distinct areas and outcomes will vary significantly. While initiatives and outcomes relating to Private sector may be more easily achieved, those relating to Public Sector/Government may require a different track and timeline. My suggestion is to cover these two separately so outcomes are more easily tracked and managed.
