SAP has underscored its Pakistan investment plan to support Digital Pakistan’s nationwide digital transformation, diversified economic growth, and digital job creation, following a meeting between the Prime Minister His Excellency Imran Khan and SAP Co-CEO Christian Klein at the World Economic Forum. Pakistan’s economy is rapidly growing at 5.8 percent, with strong investment in the digital sector, according to the World Economy Forum.
Industry experts agree that Pakistan can leverage the Fourth Industrial Revolution with new and emerging technologies to digitally transform industry verticals. The following step will be to develop the future-ready workforce. On the sidelines of the recent World Economic Forum in Davos, Christian Klein praised the Pakistan government’s digital transformation. He also highlighted SAP’s long association with Pakistan for more than 20 years, along with its commitment to train young software engineers to take on digital careers.
“Public-private partnerships are vital for enabling Digital Pakistan’s goals of an inclusive and high-growth digital economy,” said Saquib Ahmad, Managing Director, SAP Pakistan.
“SAP’s long-term investment and support for Digital Pakistan is building in Pakistan for Pakistan. We are supporting customer co-innovation, channel partner ecosystem, and training Pakistani talent for new skills and jobs.”
