He appreciated Huawei’s resolve to train 200,000 young people and offered the support of the ministry for the setting up of a training cloud to achieve this task.

Every year, 25000 IT graduates churn out from the universities in Pakistan. However, Only 5,000 IT graduates get jobs. We have to equip the youth with training in modern technology to plug this gap, the Minister added.
