ISLAMABAD: Pakistan’s Ambassador to China, Moin ul Haque, said that Pakistan is willing to be a partner with a common vision to build a resilient, sustainable and inclusive digital future for all.
He was speaking at the Belt and Road Internet International Cooperation Forum in the Chinese city of Wuzhen on Sunday. This forum is one of the sub-forums of the 2022 World Internet Conference (WIC). The ambassador stated that Pakistan is focusing on innovation, technology and digitization.
“We have one of the youngest populations in the world who are talented, tech-savvy and ready to contribute to global efforts,” he said. The WIC Wuzhen Summit brought together more than 2,000 representatives from more than 120 countries and regions. They showcased more than 200 projects aimed at building communities in cyberspace and using digital technologies to promote social justice.
The ambassador called for an abandonment of the old mentality of zero-sum games or winner-take-all, saying, “We cannot exclude cyberspace from concepts of mutual support, trust and interests.”
Ran Chengqi, director of the China Satellite Navigation Office, said: “We seek to actively cooperate with other countries on navigation satellite systems to achieve compatibility and win-win results, jointly improve system performance and share it with the world, especially developing countries and countries along the Belt and Road.”
