Revolutionizing Animation Industry of Pakistan

Ministry of Information Technology & ISPR collaborate for development and promotion of Animation Industry in Pakistan. Syed Amin Ul Haque, Federal Minister for IT & Telecom,  Major General Babar Iftikhar, DG ISPR and Mr. Shoaib Ahmad Siddique, Secretary IT & Telecom,  were present at the occasion held on 4th February 2021 in ISPR Headquarters.

Global market size of animation industry is around $270 Billion and expected to grow to $415 Billion by year 2025. Pakistan has a huge potential to become a part of this growing industry. Currently, Pakistani animators have limited access to required infrastructure and professional training / courses. Animation Industry can contribute significantly to the economy of Pakistan. It can generate job opportunities, bring foreign investment and can help us prepare a trained work force. Animation is not just contributing to Entertainment, but it has been vastly adopted in the fields of Education, Healthcare, Engineering and Defense. A collaborative effort will be made to promote animation in different spheres for national growth and prosperity.
In the context of enabling potential entrepreneurs in the field of Animation, a dedicated Animation Incubation Centre has also been proposed  in the chalked out plan. Short courses pertaining to animation, gaming and designing will be introduced to train human resource in specialized fields. The collaboration between MolTT and ISPR will act as a tangible head start to boost Animation Industry of Pakistan.
