Pakistan has more than 2000 IT companies and more than 200,000 IT professionals with education and experience in latest IT tools and technologies. Pakistani IT companies are providing services to many large multinationals as their clients. Below are some salient features of Pakistan’s IT industry:

  • Pakistan has a streamlined government regulatory process and one of the most attractive incentives program for IT investment in the region with zero taxes on IT exports till 2019.
  • Pakistan allows 100% repatriation of profits to foreign IT investors.
  • Foreign IT investors can save up to 70% on annual operational expenses by investing in IT sector in Pakistan. On average, the annual cost for a software engineer in Pakistan is one fifth of the cost in USA and Europe.
  • Pakistan has more than 15 IT parks with IT-enabled infrastructure with more being planned in future.

This is a testament to the immense IT potential of Pakistan.
