The stalls for robots, drones, digital products, medical equipment and IT products will be displayed.

The president said that the IT sector in Pakistan has become an industry where there is a need to raise awareness about the use of modern technology in Pakistan and to facilitate customers and encourage Pakistani IT companies. “We have to equip ourselves to meet the future challenges of technology and this is the right time to get the latest information on robotics, business automation, smart health solutions, e-logistics and 3d technologies,” he added.

RCCI president further added that in Pakistan the IT industry had great potential and urged the government to provide a favourable environment for the promotion of IT in different sectors including banking (e-banking), medicine (telemedicine) and manufacturing (e-designing).

With the increase of internet penetration in Pakistan, he said, the IT sector offered huge potential for local companies to join hands with multinational companies.
