For the first time ever, Pakistan will host the Asia Pacific ICT Alliance (APICTA) Awards, which give ICT inventors and entrepreneurs the chance to network and compare their products, as well as encourage economic and trade partnerships.
The information was disclosed by the delegation of the APICTA Awards, led by Stan Singh, who is now in Pakistan. Speaking at a press conference, Stan Singh said that APICTA Awards is an international awards programme that strives to raise community ICT knowledge and help close the digital divide. He was joined by Badar Khushnood, Chairman P@SHA, Vice Chairman Fulvio Inserra, and other members.
In order to promote economic and workforce development, trade relations, and technological collaboration in the Asia Pacific area, APICTA’s purpose is to create a platform for the recognition and acceleration of domestic ICT breakthroughs.
APICTA chairman Stan Singh said that ICT is no more business enabler but business itself.
The 16 economies that make up the group are anticipated to participate in the event, which is scheduled for the first week of December 2022. India, however, is not a member of the Alliance. Pakistan was chosen because it had experienced economic hardship in the past but has since recovered., according to Badar Khushnood.
Only those who have earned a spot in other awards competitions run by the authorised representative of each member nation are eligible for the APICTA Awards. The sole route for Pakistani IT businesses, startups, and students to apply for APICTA Awards is through P@SHA. The guidelines for jurors are very strict, and there is a developed judgement system and advising judges to ensure that the verdicts are impartial.
