The Federal Minister for Science and Technology Fawad Chaudhry has said that the ministry has developed an e-payment gateway in the country.
In a statement on Wednesday, he said that a test-launch was pending due to incomplete back-end work on the platform which needed more time.
In order to launch it immediately, we will need support from China.
He added that having Pakistan’s own e-payment system will help document the economy and that the ministry was heading in the right direction in this regard.
Note that the minister had announced to launch a mobile payment system in Pakistan in May this year, days after introducing the country’s first Hijri calendar and a moon-sighting application.
