    Undoubtedly Telenor, Telenor Pakistan are among the few foremost companies to talk about Digitalisation in Pakistan is also done by “Gul Ahmad’s latest “digital” cotton satin collection creating perfect vibes for fall season”.is the type propagated in Pakistan for digitalisation. I would say sincere and serious initiative to AI, in transportation where Nr. 1 in the world, with EV, back in 1997 when I visited Telenor and saw the remarkable use by StatOil of EVs, when it was un-heard of. Today world heading towards digitalisation of transport which means buses for transportation, and related digital initiatives to let people of Pakistan use buses, bicycles and bicycle track, rather cars, motor cycles for daily commuting, and develop digital transportation in collaboration with Telenor the leading Norwegian company to protect Pakistan from smoke, ICE (Internal Combustion Engine) which are not even worth scrap today, is being imported for billions. Telenor Pakistan may consider to launch an IPO with Pakistan Stock Exchange and Oslo, and China for a company to produce EV Buses, transport vans, trucks, followed by Fully automated transport on Google technology etc., etc., and aim at Pakistan Road & Belt Initiatives of CPEC to avail bilateral trade by exporting the Digital buses, trucks, coaches to Pakistan, and China which are now connected by trucking for cargo now worldwide. This will be the best thing for Telenor to start from Pakistan followed by a spectrum license of 5G ITU recomendation. Pakistan may opt., for a roaming agreement with the EU for 5G technology on ETSI reccomendations. Best wishes
