Pakistan is surely a country enriched with lot of resources but are we competing in the world of Technology? The question arises in the mind of every individual who has a dream of developed Pakistan.
Every country is focused on getting better in the technology as our neighbors. China is one of the most advanced technological country in the world with best telecommunication operators. Recently China revealed the world’s biggest Radio Telescope that will allow China to detect radio signals from more than 1,000 light-years away in the outer space. Yes, you read it right. They are not just making enormous progress for their country but also try to find communications from the outer world.
India is also not behind in the technology world. They are making flying progress in the telecommunications as well as in the Space Technology. A survey tells that Tata Communication is the Asia’s 3rd biggest Telecom that owns and operates the world’s most advanced and largest subsea fiber optics cable network.
Where We Stand?
The fact tells us that we are still far behind in the technology world from all developed or under-develop countries. Our Space Program 2040 is a satellite development and launch program of the Space and Upper Atmosphere Research Commission (Suparco) that will launch some satellites between 2011 to 2040. It means in almost next 30 years we will make progress in outer space by just sending some satellites that others countries had done 2 to 3 decades ago. Our Telecom industries are also doing work in the same fashion as they got the license of 3rd generation and 4th generation telecommunication technology last year. Pakistan is the 8th largest country in the ranking of most mobile phone users in the world with the figure of 140 million users. After a year, the telecom operators are still not manage to able to functionally cover the full country with 3g and 4g connectivity.
But as the things are changing, we are quite sure that Pakistan got lot of potential to be the best country in the world of technology and we hope that the time is near when we see the bright Pakistan with the rising Technological Future.
