He said that US technology could help Pakistani private sector in value addition of products and emphasized that Pakistan Embassy in US should play role for technology transfer to Pakistan. He said Pakistan has a big pool of young IT professionals and US companies should be approached to focus on importing quality software products from Pakistan at competitive prices.
