The Officials of the IT ministry are hopeful that Google will establish its office in Pakistan in the next few days. According to MoITT Officials, Google in recent years has launched several initiatives in Pakistan.
The MoITT official said Google’s registration as a company in Pakistan is a good sign. Google is investing $3.5 million in the Google Certification Program and the registration with SECP means that the company wants to invest more.
