The government has announced the establishment of 10 new Software Technology Parks across the country by next year.

This announcement was made during a briefing by the Ministry of Information Technology to a high-level meeting chaired by Prime Minister (PM) Shehbaz Sharif in Islamabad.

In addition to the new technology parks, the meeting highlighted plans to set up 100 new e-employment centers nationwide by next year. These initiatives are part of the government’s broader strategy to boost the IT sector and create more job opportunities.


The project for the Islamabad IT Park, which is being developed in cooperation with South Korea, is expected to be completed next year. This state-of-the-art facility will offer a range of amenities, including spaces for startups, incubation centers, banks, restaurants, and other essential services.

Moreover, South Korea is also collaborating on an information technology park project near Jinnah International Airport in Karachi, scheduled for completion by 2027. These projects are part of an ongoing effort to expand the country’s IT infrastructure, which already includes 43 software technology parks established in 29 cities.
