According to the Daily Times, the Information Technology (IT) Park being created in Islamabad would create around 15,000 new jobs opportunities for experts, IT professionals, and students.

The Minister for IT and Telecommunication (MoITT), Syed Aminul Haque, lay the groundwork for it at Chak Shehzad last year as part of the efforts toward a Digital Pakistan.

According to an official from the MoITT, the project is also projected to cost Rs. 13.27 billion, and the latter is establishing the IT park with financial aid from Exim Bank, Korea.

The park will house around 120 startups and small and medium-sized firms (SMEs), as well as ancillary facilities like as testing laboratories, classrooms, an industry-academia linkage centre, an auditorium, and so on.

In addition to generating economic benefit, the IT park is expected to reduce the IT sector’s infrastructural constraints, boost technological commercialization, and improve research and development through academia-industry cooperation.

It is projected to boost Pakistan’s IT exports and industrial competitiveness, as well as attract government direct investment in the IT industry.

The Capital Development Authority (CDA) has already approved the building’s design, and MoITT has secured construction clearance from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

The park will feature 12 floors and a total size of 66,893 square metres.
