A Glimpse Into The Future: Pakistan’s Largest IT Park

There is excitement all around the nation in response to the unveiling of the IT park project in Islamabad. The massive 3.3-acre park to be developed in Sector G-10 of the capital, which already serves as a hub for hundreds of startups, software companies, and freelancers, is envisioned to be a center for creativity.

The park, with its state-of-the-art amenities including a library, exhibition areas, and dedicated spaces for conferences and research, is expected to play a significant role in Pakistan’s digital economy. An impressive covered area of 0.1 Million square feet is estimated to accommodate around 5 to 6 thousand freelancers!

A Public-Private Partnership Model

The up and coming IT park will serve as an example of the Public-Private Partnership model’s collaborative model. Initially, the cost of the construction will be borne by private organizations and companies, which will also be able to lease space from the park to set up their personal IT offices. Later on, after a period of 1.5 decades, the ownership will fall under the hands of the Capital Development Authority (CDA) completely. It is anticipated that this strategy would stimulate the economy and lead to the development of jobs in the technology industry.
