During the meeting, matters related to performance of the IT Ministry, and the proceedings of the National Assembly were discussed. 
The Federal Minister for IT apprised the Deputy Speaker about the on-going projects to provide broadband services in the un-served & under-served areas of the country and the steps taken for the promotion of the IT and Telecom industry in the last 5 years. Syed Amin Ul Haque said that the Telecom Sector is facing some problems due to the restriction on LCs, while the ongoing projects of broadband services are also getting delayed.
He informed the Deputy Speaker National Assembly that the confidence of the IT industry is being restored due to Prime Minister's special interest in taxation and other matters related to the industry. As a result, there has been a record 28% increase in IT exports in May 2023, which is a welcome development. There is no doubt that if the MoITT’s recommendations for the IT and Telecom sector are fully implemented, the industry can play a more effective and stronger role to stabilize the economy and in increasing foreign exchange reserves.
