“With our increased focus on transparency of systems and the need for improved efficiencies, we believe that the introduction of new technologies can certainly improve governance structures. We are very eager to adopt the use of these technologies in order to serve the public better as part of our vision and working closely with innovative organizations like Telenor Pakistan will bring us closer to our ambitions,” said, Dr. Syed Kaleem Imam, Inspector General National Highways &Motorway Police.
