ISLAMABAD: The Information Technology (IT) sector has shown exceptional growth throughout the current financial year, with a growth in exports recorded above 40%, between July 2020 and February 2021.
The State Bank of Pakistan (SBP) has informed that exports for IT and IT-enabled services had surged to $1.298 billion in the financial year 2020-21 in contrast with the numbers of last year that were recorded at $918 million. This demonstrates a year-on-year increase of 41.2%.
According to the officials, the reason for this growth is mainly the increased foreign demand for e-commerce, software development, automation and other services. Exports worth $2 billion for the IT sector are projected by the industry experts, keeping in mind the infiltration of the local companies in numerous exportable countries.
