PM Khan to Launch Pakistan’s First-Ever Digital City in Haripur

Prime Minister Imran Khan will visit Haripur today (Monday) to lay the groundwork for the Pakistan Digital City Special Technology Zone project, the country’s first of its kind.

The prime minister will go with the Chief Minister of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) Mahmood Khan, and federal and provincial ministers. Pakistan Digital City will be finished at a cost of Rs1.31 billion and spread across 86 kanals of land.

Pakistan Digital City Haripur is a major initiative of the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa government that has been launched to provide all IT industry facilities in one location.

The project aims to be a cutting-edge facility for collaboration and innovation among academics, researchers, industry, and planners from both within and outside the country.

It will benefit other allied industries in the province, like electronics, software houses, the mobile phone industry, technology incubators, as well as computer industry.

Earlier in August 2021, the KP government approved the ‘Digital City‘ project in Haripur, which will cost Rs. 1.3 billion to build.

Prime Minister Imran Khan inaugurated Lahore Technopolis, a special technology zone, last month in order to create jobs and boost Pakistan’s tech exports.
