ISLAMABAD – Former USF CEO Pervez Iftikhar presented his ideas regarding “Information Communication Technology (ICT) For Schools”. He delivered his presentation at 12th ITCN Asia Int’l Exhibition and Conferences, Telecom Strategy Summit. He said that we spend only Rs 40.3 billion on education out of our total annual budget of Rs 2295.6 billion. Our population is increasing at a very high rate of 2pc per annum that is the highest in the region. Unfortunately we are not increasing our educational budget at the rate that should be in sync with this huge growth rate, says a press release.

He emphasized that policy makers and the leadership must devise policies for this agenda of national interest so that our next generation could reap the benefits of ICTs in this modern world.
