Information Technology

Information Technology in Pakistan is one of the fastest growing industries in the country and as such presents sizable prospects for further progress. It is regarded as one of the most successful sectors in Pakistan’s economy and has survived the recent financial crises. Pakistan is regarded as an investor’s heaven, especially in the telecom sector. The Pakistani public is very interested in emerging technologies.

Pakistan’s IT exports reached an all-time high for the outgoing financial year of 2016-17 with receipts of nearly $1 billion received through the banking channel.

Telecom sector of Pakistan has also grown mainly due to trade and investment liberalization, favorable policies and healthy competition. Pakistan is still considered an attractive market as there is significant amount of unmet demand in many areas (such as small towns and villages) that have business potential. With the introduction of 3G/4G service, the magnitude of broadband service has increased. Many other services can be offered such as mobile advertising, mobile commerce, e-health and even mobile agriculture for farmers and food production companies

With active government patronage manifested through the Arfa Karim Technology Park, arrival of high-speed mobile internet technology such as 3G and 4G LTE, and the technological surge particularly notable in the internet, mobile and telecommunications industries in general, the Mizab Group is well poised to make further inroads in this sector and build upon its impressive portfolio of innovation, technical know-how, IT solutions and services.

Power Generation

The connection between energy consumption and economic growth has been validated through various studies and surveys. The need for sustained growth in energy supply and infrastructure is undeniable. The China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) envisages projects in energy and infrastructure, with a total financial outlay of around US$ 46 billion. Financial outlay of Energy sector’s projects are estimated to be US$ 34.74 billion. According to the Pakistan Economic Survey 2016-17, a total of 17,045 MW is envisaged to be added to the system with 10,000 MW expected in 2018.

In 2017, the government made all out efforts to increase and diversify its energy supply with long-term vision of the power sector to meet Pakistan’s energy needs. The CPEC has also become a source of coordination for developing energy related projects through indigenous energy resources such as coal, hydro and renewable sources. Energy imports of liquefied natural gas (LNG) and coal along with utilization of domestic resources like construction of Thar coal mines, hydro power stations, nuclear power plants, as well as several solar and wind farms will reduce the country’s reliance on oil and improve the energy mix.

In the backdrop of such pressing needs to maximize power generation capacity, Mizab Group has also ventured into power generation with special focus on hydro power. Currently, hydro power accounts for 30% share in electricity generation. This leaves enormous scope for investors to pour their resources into hydro power generation. The Group has collaborated with multiple companies through Noor Power, a hydro power generating company, over the past few years in various power generation projects. Several MoUs have been signed with various Chinese power generation companies.

According to APP Corporation estimates, there has been a cumulative investment of approximately US $4 billion in the electronic media industry in Pakistan. And going by official estimates, electronic media sector has generated direct employment for more than 250,000 people of diversified skills and qualifications. Needless to say, the electronic media landscape has come a long way since 1964 when Pakistan’s State Television was launched; the deregulation of the electronic media in 2000 led to private TV channels and FM radio stations that broke the monopoly of official channels. PEMRA also conducted bidding in 2016-17 for award of 52 FM radio licenses across 50 cities in Pakistan. The Mizab Group ventured into the media industry through university radio and TV broadcasting, thus ensuring a foothold in this fast growing sector.
