Are you hearing such thing nowadays “Driverless Cars In Pakistan”?
Yes, because Fawad Chaudhry, the minister of information and technology, has recently announced that “Driverless cars will be rolled out on the roads in the next few years.” We must say that it is good news. Why? Kindly have a look at these recent reports.
Pakistan’s Rank According To World Economic Forum
- 16th worst economy in Global Innovation Index in 2019 rankings. (2019 report)
- Pakistan ranked 107 among 140 countries on the Global Competitiveness Index. (2018 report)
Unfortunately, Pakistan is not in the leading countries in terms of technology. We are far behind in this race. We are ranked too low by The World Economic Forum due to our weak institutions, policies, and factors which are essential parameters of the economic prosperity.
We all know that proper use of technology solves real-life problems efficiently. Moreover, government institutions of the leading countries have been modernized now. It is one of the most crucial factors in their excellent performance.
Pakistan’s government must take strict notice and try to exceed in this race of technology with the help of top IT experts. Well, the Fawad Chaudhry has stated that the current federal government (PTI) is committed to introducing the latest technologies in Pakistan.
