Jazz’s CEO Visits Tech Valley Durshal, Abbottabad

Jazz’s Chief Executive Officer, Aamir Ibrahim, recently visited the Tech Valley Durshal in Abbottabad, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, to explore further collaboration opportunities between the National Incubation Center’s Jazz xlr8 programme and Durshal, a joint venture of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Information Technology Board (KPITB). Since 2017, Jazz has embarked on a journey to digitalize Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and has been proliferating the benefits of connectivity and digital enablement under its ‘Make Your Mark’ programme by empowering youth through technology and Digital Skills & Literacy.

The main objective of this visit was to meet and interact with startups, various policy makers, and seek prospective alliances within the tourism sector.

Jazz, the country’s leading digital communications company, has always strived towards making Pakistan a better country for its people as well as others who wish to visit it, which is why it is working hard to collaborate and strengthen ties between itself and various other sectors of the country.

Aamir Ibrahim was introduced to a number of Durshal Startups where possible synergies were discussed. The upcoming Tech Valley Conference 2020 and Tourism Hackathon at DYS19 Peshawar were also discussed. Most of the consultations centered on startups already working in tourism industry, what kind of value they offer to some of the already established names such as booking.com and Airbnb, and how Jazz can support the tourism sector through its continuous efforts to make a Digital Pakistan.

During his visit, Aamir Ibrahim also met with notable dignitaries to discuss opportunities within the tourism sector. Aamir said, “Pakistan is home to some of most picturesque landscapes; however, tourism facilities from a tourist’s perspective need support and development. We are excited to play our part and help promote tourism across Pakistan to portray a positive image of the country globally. I am sure other organizations in Pakistan will also come forward whole-heartedly to support tourism in Pakistan.”

Aamir Ibrahim also met with Director General Galiyat Development Authority, General Manager of Careem, Mr. Shezad Jamal, Head of Department Tourism and Hospitality Department, Hazara University and the team behind Chkar, a startup with up to 2000 rooms and houses on board in Galiyat with a vision to expand all across KP and Pakistan. Chkar is the Pakistani version of Airbnb.
