Although this year’s [email protected] delegation was small in comparison with previous years with only 6 technology products competing for the prestigious APICTA Awards, the teams delivered a stunning performance in front of the who’s who of the technology industry in the Asia Pacific region with four out of the six winning the Silver Award in the Security, Research & Development, Communications and New Media & Entertainment categories.
International APICTA Judges from 16 economies who evaluated the categories in which Pakistan participated spoke about the consistently high standard of technology products presented by Pakistan year after year. This year Team Pakistan benchmarked its products against 153 products from the region.
