According to IT Minister Syed Aminul Haque, the Ministry of Information Technology and Telecommunication is in the process of establishing a cutting-edge Center of Excellence in Karachi to support the animation sector.
The minister claimed that Pakistan’s animation industry currently generates about $50 million in export revenue while speaking with a delegation from the multinational tech company Tencent Holdings.
According to a news release, Lih Shuin Goh, Senior Director of Public Affairs Singapore, led the trip.
The indigenous animation and video game creation industries are in their infancy, but tremendous work is being done, Haque noted while reiterating the ministry’s commitment to supporting and fostering them.
He went on to say that the National Incubation Center (NIC) on Karachi’s grounds now houses an animation studio that was installed by the IT ministry. The minister promised the group that he would provide all the assistance and support necessary for the country’s gaming and animation industries to grow.
Tencent Games is the largest worldwide platform for video game creation, publishing, and operations, dedicated to providing top-notch interactive entertainment experiences for gamers everywhere, according to Lih Shuin Goh, who briefed the minister on the operations of his business.
He added that Pakistan had enormous potential and was a crucial market for Tencent Games, adding that the firm presently supplied more than 140 self-developed and licensed games in 200 countries and territories.
