Federal IT & Telecom Minister Syed Amin UI Haque has complimented the work of the graduating founders and thanked them for their visit to the occasion. He stated, "NIC Karachi has made an enormous contribution to Pakistan's regional and national economy by encouraging innovation and encouraging entrepreneurial culture.
