The Centre for Public Policy & Governance (CPPG) in collaboration with United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) Geneva cordially invites you to the official launch in Pakistan on UNCTAD’s Information Economy Report 2012: The Software Industry and Developing Countries followed by a roundtable dialogue on ICT and Internet Policy on Wednesday, November 28, 2012, 5-7:30 pm. Venue of the event will be The Rt. Rev. Bishop Alexander John Malik Public Policy Seminar room # E-002.


“The Information Economy Report 2012(IER 2012): The Software Industry and Developing Countries”, a seventh edition in the flagship series published by UNCTAD emphasizes that ICT trends are creating better opportunities for the developing countries to enhance indigenous software capabilities. As one of the few annual reports monitoring global trends related to information and communication technologies (ICTs) from a development perspective, the Report is a valuable reference source for stakeholders.

The ICT Policy Dialogue will bring together a multi-stakeholder gathering of Government and Public Sector, Academia and Research, Civil Society, and the Private Sector to share their views on how the findings of IER 2012 inform Pakistan’s ICT Policy process
