Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) had developed and launched an exclusive online information portal (www.pakistan.pk) on 13th December 2010.
Pakistan.PK acts as a single source of information and a content repository to residents, visitors and International communities.
The visitor’s statistics available at the portal speaks for its upbeat success during the first 70 days of launch where the present number of visitors has surpassed 150000, an average of 2100 hits per day.
According to PTA, primary objective to launch the portal was to create a single source facilitation web portal that allows users to access any and all information regarding Pakistan that is already available electronically. The electronic access of information will improve the productivity and efficiency of public and private organizations.
This overwhelming response from the Internet users applauds the success of the portal both in terms of its anticipated benefit and available content. These types of initiatives to facilitate the local content availability to general people would surely support the promotion and utilization of Internet in the country.
We are told that PTA has also planned to develop the Urdu and Mobile versions of portal to provide more facilitation to the Internet community of Pakistan.
