The impetus for technology driven industrial revolution in Pakistan!

Who We Are

In recognition of the crucial need to harness the opportunities of the digital age, the Prime Minister has issued a mandate to establish the Special Technology Zones Authority (STZA), which will provide legislative and institutional support for the development of the national technology sector. This body, under the Cabinet Division of Government of Pakistan, will work to develop a technology-driven knowledge ecosystem and encourage modern innovative solutions and futuristic entrepreneurship. STZA will develop Special Technology Zones (STZs) across Pakistan, provide special incentives to attract investors, builders, and technology companies to partner with the government, and also provide a one-window facilitation to local and international companies in the STZs. Ultimately, the Authority aims to build knowledge ecosystems that will harness Pakistan’s IT potential and set the country on the trajectory of an entrepreneurial, innovative, and tech-driven future for shared prosperity & inclusive growth.

Message from

Chairman STZA

Pakistan is a country with the potential to be extraordinary. Our exceedingly young vibrant population, our fast growing digital footprint and our ability to innovate are well documented. The key is to weave our comparative advantages into results that are greater than the sum of their parts, so Pakistan becomes a progressive, developed, and modern social welfare state as per the prudent vision of our Honourable Prime Minister Imran Khan. Collaborating with private sector, academia, multilateral institutions and government stakeholders, Special Technology Zones Authority (STZA) is the government body charged with driving technology innovation and entrepreneurship, and delivering a complete knowledge ecosystem to fast track Pakistan’s economic growth. STZA brings a dynamic, citizen oriented and agile approach to using technology innovation to create exponential value for Pakistan’s citizens and the global community. I am of the firm belief that technology is the fastest way to grow and to enable results. Let’s engineer the extraordinary.

Amer Ahmed Hashmi
