LAHORE: Partnering with the tech leaders in the private sector to improve the digital footprint of Pakistan and IT exports, the Punjab Information Technology Board (PITB) has launched the BizLinks initiative.

The initiative is a major step forward towards collaborative engagement with tech leaders through strategic partnerships and jointly exploring business opportunities nationwide and globally, revealed PITB here on Monday.

The PITB flagship products have been made part of this initiative, including e-Pay Punjab, Ease of Doing Business (EoDB), e-FOAS, e-Stamping and School Information System (SIS). It has also launched a special portal (bizlinks.pitb.gov.pk) to showcase the PITB’s products and services and the sign-up facility for interested partners.

In this connection, PITB Chairman Faisal Yousaf hosted an event, which was attended by leading players from the IT industry and members of the public sector, including PASHA Chairman Zohaib Khan, PITB Board Member Jehan Ara and other industry leaders from Abacus, Inbox, Lumensoft, InfoTech, CureMD, Autosoft Dynamics and Nextbridge.

Commenting on the new initiative, the PITB Chairman underlined the importance of working together for uplifting IT exports. He averred that the launch of the BizLinks initiative marks the beginning of a new era of collaboration between PITB and the private sector.

“With a special focus on boosting and promoting the local tech industry, the PITB aims at working with the private sector to reach out to the world and explore business opportunities within and beyond the region to enhance IT exports and earn valuable foreign exchange,” he added.

PASHA Chief Zohaib Khan termed the initiative a welcome move towards supporting the local tech industry. “We congratulate the PITB for this great initiative and look forward to working together for the cause of Pakistan,” he added.

Under the new initiative, the PITB aims to collaborate with the tech industry and entrepreneurs, to explore business opportunities and to grow together, within and beyond the region.

“With over 20 years of solid growth and innovation, the PITB possesses the expertise, domain knowledge and experience of working extensively with public-sector departments and entities to automate their business processes and provide citizens with greater access to reliable digital services.

We aim at modernising the governance techniques through transparency-induced methods and increasing the digital literacy of pertinent stakeholders, among many other services,” said the PITB.
