The Chairman PTA was also briefed about Jazz’s efforts in improving start-up infrastructure in partnership with the National Incubation Centre.  “We are exploring areas to ensure that the masses have safe and easy access to the benefits of an increasingly digital world,” he further added.    “By far the greatest power that connectivity holds is the ability to instantly empower millions of Pakistanis to break the socio-economic barriers in an increasingly interconnected world.
