As the PM says “ghabrana naheen hai”
Tania Aidrus, Google Ex-Executive, resigned from Google for Pakistan. Prime Minister of Pakistan Imran Khan launched Pakistan Digital Vision and Tania Aidrus joined as CEO. Tania Adrous tweeted that
Tania Aidrus described her past. She said, “I want to see Pakistan growing.” According to her vision, Pakistan has millions of online users. She wants to contribute to Pakistan and wants to see Pakistan as a growing country.
Struggles from Google to #DigitalPakistan
Tania Aidrus wanted to start business and went to Singapore. There she joined Google and launched many of Google’s Products in Pakistan. But she always realized that she wasn’t doing enough for Pakistan and wanted to do more for Pakistan. Last year, after she felt to come back to Pakistan and contribute to growing within Pakistan’s Government. Almost 6 months ago someone sent an email to PM Imran Khan and told that if Pakistan wants to grow as a digital and technologized country so contact her. Tania Aidrus didn’t about the email. PM’s team started following her and called her a few months ago and convince her to come back to Pakistan. Shah Mehmood Qureshi also gave her platform and met her to IT Minister. Tania Aidrus met with many of Cabinet members and at the very first meeting with PM Imran Khan, Imran Khan Said, “Khabrana Nhi Hai”.
What will be in #DigitalPakistan?
Tania Aidrus as CEO of Digital Pakistan will make improvements in Digital Technology and there will be many chances to start new billion dollars companies in all fields like commerce. There are more than 70 million broadband users now in Pakistan. The government will create an enabling environment, digital blocks, and policies. Policies will allow innovation to show its magic.
