In a recent development, Pakistan’s interim Information Technology (IT) minister, Umar Saif, expressed his country’s strong commitment to bolstering its collaboration with Saudi Arabia, focusing on the IT and telecom sectors. This affirmation follows a meeting between Minister Saif and Saudi Arabia’s Ambassador to Pakistan, Nawaf bin Said Al-Malki, in Islamabad.

Minister Saif underlined Pakistan’s eagerness to strengthen its partnership with Saudi Arabia in IT and telecommunications, emphasizing the significant potential for growth in these sectors within Pakistan. He invited Saudi tech companies, encouraging them to invest in Pakistan and highlighting the favourable investment environment offered by the South Asian nation. The state-run Radio Pakistan broadcaster reported these developments.

Ambassador Al-Malki, in response, pledged Saudi Arabia’s full cooperation with Pakistan in the IT and telecom domains. He assured his unwavering support in streamlining the visa process for Pakistani IT firms, fostering a more conducive atmosphere for collaboration.

The historical, cultural, defence and economic ties between Pakistan and Saudi Arabia are deeply rooted, with a shared history and religious connection. Saudi Arabia is home to a sizable expatriate Pakistani population, with over two million Pakistani nationals, making it the largest source of remittance inflows in Pakistan. This strengthens the foundation of the enduring and multi-faceted relationship between the two nations.
