Pakistan and its External Debts — The Only Solution!
One Straight Forward Solution to Pakistan’s overwhelming external debts.
Pakistan is a land of young talent but the state has failed to utilize their potential to the fullest!
With 63% of the population YOUNG, Pakistan has the best time to become a developed nation instead of a developing one.
Pakistan’s external debts can be minimized only if freelance businesses are promoted across by fetching money from every corner of the globe.
I meant, IT (Information Technology), focusing on the services that can be sold solely with the help of internet. ;)
According to a report, Pakistan’s IT exports were over a Billion $ which is a good figure for a country that is lacking in other sectors like agriculture and industry!
PROMOTING INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY ENVIRONMENT IS THE ONLY WAY FOR PAKISTAN TO PROSPER!
Here are a few strategies that government can practice to ensure a multiplied figure for IT Exports:
#1. Creation of a ONE SINGLE AUTHORITY to train Youth About IT
The authority can have sub-authorities for each province but the decisions should be made from the major authority.
Authority members should be mentors that are already doing AWESOME by exporting their softwares and services across the globe.
I’ll compile a list of those mentors later; keep reading:
#2. IT Education should be MADE FREE AND ACCESSIBLE
This matters the most, the more accessible the knowledge is, the better exposure our youth will get.
Information Technology sector should have professionally designed courses that can be added in secondary and higher secondary education syllabus. With this addition, students will get familiar with the basics and jump start their freelance career when they’re good at it!
#3. Bringing International Payment Gateways
Talk to any successful Pakistani freelance or IT exporter, they’ll surely complain about international payment gateways.
Like PayPal that is used by almost every country, Pakistan is not in their list. How will the online businesses in Pakistan receive their payments when they’ve no access PayPal?
Although there are a number of alternatives but we can’t ignore the INTERNATIONAL payment gateways. State Bank of Pakistan should send a a delegation to PayPal and provide them with full support to start their operations in Pakistan instantly!
List of Champions that are contributing to IT Exports the MOST!
Within a span of just two decades, Pakistan has got hundreds of millionaires (yes, in $$) that are purely internet-made. :))
Here is a list of those champions that have helped Pakistan’s economy a lot:
Tanveer Nandla — Dr.Web
Tanveer Nandla is a PRO blogger from Multan, he made half million rupees in 24 hours. He is currently running a training institute named iSkills where he teaches Blogging, SEO, Affiliate Marketing, and other skills that are essential to becoming a Doctor Web!
Hisham Sarwar — BeingGuru
Most Probably, Hisham is the father of freelancing in Pakistan. No matter it is Upwork, People Per Hour, Fiverr or any marketplace, his secrets are a straight forward approach to freelance success!
He has shared almost everything on his YouTube channel on how you can start selling your soft skills online. He has made thousands of youngsters kick start their freelance careers; helping Pakistan’s drowning economy with better reserves!
Qasim Hussain — PHPTravels
Qasim Hussain is basically an advanced programmer who’s always busy creating digital products!
He is the founder of PHPTravels which is a one-stop solution for online travel businesses. He recently launched a freelance marketplace named Paidlance which connects digital businesses and freelancers. His products (like PHP Travels) are crafted with accuracy and are a hit when it comes to the international market.
Tayyab Saqlain Zakki — ClickOn
Tayyab is doing a fantastic job running an SEO agency that converts simple websites/blogs into money-making machines. After huge success in the SEO industry, he has got a philanthropic vision about teaching whatever he has learned. Therefore, he left his work city (Lahore) and moved to Bhakkar (starting from START), where his first institute has already started working. He wants his knowledge to be delivered nationwide.
Waleed Najam — Rankistan
Waleed is a learned SEO guru, eCommerce specialist, and the CEO of leading IT exporter Rankistan.
Waleed has made several eCommerce stores a success throughout his career. I met him a few years back in Lahore where he shared pure secrets that can take any webpage to the first page of GOOGLE!
Mohammad Abid — Growth Builders
Probably the smartest blogger I know. Mohammad Abid is running an agency named Growth Builders where he takes web success to a whole new level. Whether it is a micro-niche blog, an eCommerce store, or an affiliate products site, his agency has got you covered!
The BOTTOM LINE
Every second is important, the world is changing at a great pace!
With that dynamics in hand, Pakistan needs to focus on the industry that can make more in less time. Information Technology is the industry to focus on. The government of Pakistan should consider these champions and start a country-wide training program. Youth has got the real energy; when unleashed in IT, Pakistan will have no external debt issue in the years to come! (MARK MY WORDS).
