Government Leadership Award

Government of Pakistan

This award recognises the Government of Pakistan’s proactive approach in consulting with the industry as it embarks on a series of regulatory reforms, starting with the adoption of the Telecom Policy 2015 to drive further regulatory modernisation in the country. This government has also consistently shown support for mobile enabled ICT as a development tool, showing that mobile can be central to Pakistan’s Vision 2025 goals as well as the achievement of the UN Sustainable Development Goals. As ever with far thinking reform, challenges remain, but this award recognises the critical importance of transparency and constructive and open dialogue with industry, as essential elements to the future of every country’s policy framework.
