PML-N Senator Afnan Ullah revealed that technology giant Google will soon begin its operations in Pakistan.
The Senator said that a Google delegation would arrive in Pakistan on December 11 to begin operations.
After beginning operations in Pakistan, the portal will offer 15,000 scholarships to Pakistanis.
The senator added that the expansion of Google services in Pakistan by the government will result in more job prospects for young people in Pakistan.
Google in recent years launched several initiatives in Pakistan.
Earlier in September, Google launched Career Certificates to provide flexible learning pathways for all Pakistanis, enabling learners to advance their knowledge and pick up digital skills for in-demand occupations.
Google also launched a suicide hotline with Umang for Pakistan in June, to tackle the rising suicide rate as well as to create mental health awareness.
Along with representatives from Tech Valley Pakistan, a Google delegation also paid a visit to the Special Technology Zones Authority – STZA office in Islamabad in April to brief about Special Technology Zones being developed by STZA across Pakistan.
