KARACHI: As part of the increasing emphasis on Pakistan’s information and technology industry, a delegation comprising the National Assembly speaker and 15 members of the assembly made an official visit to Beijing.
The aim of this official trip was to promote the Safe City joint venture, being undertaken in collaboration with Huawei, in addition to finding innovative ways to improve the country’s IT infrastructure.
The China National People’s Congress foreign affairs officer and Huawei’s senior vice president were also present.
After the visit, a meeting was held between the delegation members and the Huawei management, which briefed Sadiq about the ventures and initiatives being undertaken by Huawei Corporation and Huawei Pakistan.
Sadiq emphasised the importance of the Safe-City project, which is very essential for the progress of a developing country like Pakistan.
“It can be of immense help in the administration and management of major cities,” he said. “This project should be launched at the earliest in Peshawar, to overcome the administrative and security challenges being faced by the city.”
