ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan on Thursday said the government would now fully focus on digitization of Pakistan.
“The government is facing great resistance from the institutions on converting them to e-governance, but I can assure them that they could not resist it for longer. E-governance will help eradicate corruption,” PM Imran Khan said while addressing the inaugural ceremony of ‘Digital Pakistan Campaign’ in Islamabad.
He said you would be able to execute different operations on your mobile phone through e-commerce.
PM Khan said the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government had turned the current account deficit into surplus. Value of Pakistani currency could decline up to 200 or 250 rupees a dollar as we did not have enough money to stop it, he said.
“All the institutions of the country were in deficit, when the PTI came into power,” he said.
However, the prime minister said, he who was not courageous enough to take risk would accomplish nothing in their lives. He said whoever made progress in their lives had to take big decisions, which turned out to be a watershed.
“I am happiest the most for the fact that Pakistan has become relevant internationally by turning its status from a pawn of proxy war to a peace maker,” he said.
He said the next period of Pakistan was going to be very exciting.
“Don’t be afraid.”
