Zahid Jamil talks with ITLOW regarding policy making

February 17, 2009 at 7:18 am 3 comments

In the past few months we have seen two ICT policy making initiatives emerge, both not quite starting or proceeding the way a policy process is supposed to, hence resulting in a lot of anguish for those of us who understand the far-reaching impact and importance of these policies.

Have they gone about it the right way? Is this the way policies are framed? I discussed the issue with Barrister Zahid Jamil to get some of the answers.

    Essentially Pakistan has no ICT policy and probably wouldn’t as long as import duties on computers and proliferation of connectivity is democratic. Being one of the pioneers of FOSS and FLOSS movement in Pakistan, its funny to see people spout off lies about a policy which has never been formulated or carried out to be honest. As long as telecom industry is privatized and bandwidth costs doesn’t fall under 5% of Average income per capita, its not possible in any circumstances as per evidence of micro economics.
