The information technology (IT) industry in Pakistan faces challenges that need to be understood by everyone preparing to send or receive IT services from that country. Restrictions on funds transfers from the U.S. to Pakistan, implemented after 9/11, are causing problems for firms in Pakistan that need to receive funds from the U.S. Some U.S. clients are simply walking away from deals with Pakistani firms once they realize that special clearances need to be received in order to send money to Pakistan.
I have one serious question?? Who is really gonna go to Pakistan for work. The total number of foreigners Pakistan received last year is 0. The moment a white man is spotted on the streets of Pakistan..Another Daniel Pearl story will be repeated. I know that Mr Anthony Mitchell has just set up a hiring agency in Pakistan and he wants to convince his clients thats its ok to hire cheap Pakistani workers..( Like its ok to buy a Korean Car as long as it looks a cross between Toyota and Mercedes)..
The entire business of out-sourcing is about control..and control by multinational coroporations...The industry is not looking at "Indian sub-continent"..They are looking at INDIA...Its not about just counting heads..its about outsourcing to get the SAME quality as in US at a CHEAPER PRICE.There is no comparision to quality of education available in India and with any other country in Asia...Click the following to know that..This magazine published from Hong Kong (China) lists the best management and techonolgy centeres in Asia.. ( Pakistani Managers??/)
Pakistan's IT challenges are different..its about placing genuine benefits of outsourcing in the hands of US Corporations in a long period of time un-hindered..I believe Pakistan has not even started to scratch the surface...
topgun, u look so lost. well u must look back at recent gujrat violence... the hindus killed thousands of muslims and raped the muslim women and burned them alive... and even worse, the police was also with those hindus helping them continue to kill innocent muslims... this is what you call democracy and secular state?? .. and i can list all those aweful facts about india but i dont want to star a war... i want you to be realistic and accept the facts that come across you. I admire india for being intelligent in software industry, being creative in arts like film and music. Every nation has its strengths and weaknesses, but this doesnt mean u have to keep pointing those weaknesses... and claim victory over the other one...
I m really unfortunate for being neighbor of such ill-minded Indians, they never lose the chance where they can spoil the image of Pakistan. So one of them is here as well. He said that there is a daniel pearl story on each street. But due to his lack of knowledge he dont knows that the ticket on which Daniel Pearl LEFT PAKISTAN was presented to the court as a proof that Daniel Pearl is yet alive.
I invite this gentleman to pakistan on my responsibility, so that I can clear his doubts about Pakistan. He must know that there is no Gujrat, or lower cast killing in Pakistan. There is no Tamil, ULFA, Khalsa or anything like this. Every minority is safe here, not like India where they killed many innocent christians only bcoz they were christians. thousands of people had been burnt only bcoz they were not damn Hindu.
Dear rethink about India, try to reconstruct your norms, dont spoil other's image when u have to develop your own as well.
I would like to see my neighbors healthy minded.
Have you been there . HuH . Baseless crap I often see from YOU guys . Why not think some thing constructive about Pakistan . And please Indians stop burning Australian priests and other foreigners there ... Please let the neighbours live in peace .
