In reply to Anthony Mitchell
I agree with the writer. Having first hand experience of job in Bay Area as well as in Lahore, Pakistan, I can conclude that the circumstances are very favorable for outsourcing jobs in Pk.
Firstly, the standard of IT education in Lahore has increased to a great extent. Take for example one of the top IT school...Lums..it had a intake of 160 in 1998..now it has increased the intake to 600 ppl..at the same time developing fascilities for students...then many other colleges were given UNIV status and 4 yr Bsc was introduced 4-5 yrs ago..it was 2 yrs previously. Then , at Fsc level(equivalent to Highschool), IT courses were inrtroduced.
About corruption and economy...recently, Computerized ID cards were introduced..adds were given by the leading news pprs for those who tried to change their identities by applying for new ID cards...machine readable passports have begin to take place of old passports..online tax returns were introduced this yr..n the govt gave incentives for big firms to pay their taxes..adds appeared in news pprs for that. The new PM Shaukat Aziz..chalked down the annual budget for the last 4 yrs which were passed undisputedly...it not only increased the foreign reserve but also gave a boost to the banking sector.
For setting up a company you can now get an easy loan from the banks..the site mentioned pseb.org not only has a listing of all the IT companies of pk , but they also have the latest IT update..they also give incentives for setting up a company if you have new ideas etc.
Job mkt is getting better for IT ppl...u can visit pak-it jobs(groups.yahoo.com)...to have a first hand experience.
In lhr, roads, buildings, and other infrastructure is being built at surprising time duration....so this is just the tip of the iceberg..I mean I dont want to make a pic of safe heaven for outsourcing jobs in pk...obviously there are problems..like any other country..but the growth rate is tremendous for those who believe in glass is half full theory:)
