Due to Pakistan’s recent technology boom, it is relatively easy to find statistics about ICT and resources on their ICT Policy and the digital divide. All of the publications I found and used were written in English so it was easy to read. It will be interesting to see how Pakistan manages this ICT growth in the future and whether the ICT policy goals will be met; therefore, it is definitely a great country to analyze for this project.
