Pakistan bags 7 APICTAs

At the 10th International Asia Pacific ICT Awards (APICTA) held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, the Pakistan team bagged 7 awards out of 16 APICTA categories. The credit goes to the efforts of the P@SHA (Pakistan Software Houses Association for IT & ITES), which has been representing Pakistan in many international events. The proud Pakistani delegation picked up 7 Merit Awards (the APICTA Silver equivalent). These included Runners up Awards in Security Applications, E-Inclusion and E-Community, Financial Applications, Communications, E-Government and E-Health categories. This is the first year in the history of the APICTA Awards that the Pakistan name was called 7 times across 6 diverse categories.

“We have always known that Pakistani technology companies are doing great work for customers in Pakistan and globally so this simply is an acknowledgement of their hard work and credentials at an international level by an international panel of respected judges”, said Ms. Jehan Ara, President P@SHA at the closing ceremony of the APICTA Awards in Kula Lumpur.

Commenting on the achievement, Mr Khushnood, the Pakistan Google Country Consultant who also took the role of an APICTA Judge this year, remarked, “Seven awards at an international world class event like APICTA is a testament to the collaborative effort put together by the P@SHA delegation, P@SHA mentors, member companies and Pakistani participants.”

Bravo P@SHA!! The awards truly make you the flagship of IT industry in Pakistan.
