Digital transformation is underway in the country, with government and public institutions as well as private and development organisations using digital platforms to increase engagement and improve service delivery to citizens. In recognition of the impact of digital technologies, the government’s digital policy aims to transform Pakistan into a knowledge based economy, while the planned National Digital Transformation Initiative aims to encourage a more consistent approach to the use of digital technologies to deliver good governance.

In this report, we discuss the following:
