Expressing his thoughts on the occasion, Mr. Syed Amin Ul Haque showed great appreciation to the IT sector for playing a significant role in Pakistan’s economic growth and attracting major foreign investments to the country. He stated that the IT sector of Pakistan has full potential in becoming the biggest player of the country’s export industry in the coming years, and highlighted that the IT Ministry will jointly work with all the concerned authorities to facilitate the sector’s progress.

Accepting the awards, Mr. Asif Peer, CEO Systems Limited, welcomed Mr. Syed Amin Ul Haque’s commitment of making collaborative efforts to further accelerate the IT sector’s growth. “If something is required today, it is investment in the IT sector because this is the only sector in Pakistan that is growing quicker than any other industry segment,” said Mr. Asif Peer. The CEO of Systems Limited also hailed the government’s decision to allow the country’s IT industry to function during the COVID-19 pandemic which has resulted in extraordinary growth of the sector. “I am thankful to the government for doing a great job in allowing the IT sector to be open as an essential industry. This has had a huge effect on our revenue generation. We have all grown by leaps and bounds because we could tell our customers that because our government is supporting us, we are following the SOPs, but we are open. That mattered the most to our buyers and we are thankful to the authorities who helped us during this time,” said Mr. Asif Peer.
