“Our real goal is to make Pakistan a technology superpower in 10 years,” he said.

“I call upon multinationals of USA, China, Russia, Korea, Japan, and EU to join hands with us rest assure Pakistan will ensure the most competitive environment and most relaxed tax structure for tech business our doors are open,” announced Chaudhry.
