ISLAMABAD - Pakistan software exports register significant growth in FY 2019.
Pakistan’s IT companies continued to strengthen their niche in software consultancy services as they attracted over $100 million in receipts in first four months of the current financial year 2019-20.
According to the data released by State Bank of Pakistan, the country’s exports in the core field of software consultancy have surged to $129 million during the period of July to October 2019 as compared to $113 million in the same period last financial year, showing a staggering growth of 14.7 percent year-on-year.
The growth in the field of software consultancy is prominent among other areas of IT exports such as telecommunication services, hardware consultancy services and call centers.
