KARACHI: Jazz, Pakistan’s number one 4G operator and the largest internet and broadband service provider is being brought onboard by the Lahore Central Business District Development Authority (LCBDDA) to build a smart city ecosystem, a statement said.

For this purpose, a memorandum of understanding (MoU) was signed between Jazz chief business officer Syed Ali Naseer and LCBDDA chief executive officer Imran Amin.

The idea behind this project is to put Pakistan on the map of global business districts. For this, LCBDDA signed a partnership agreement with Jazz, where both parties will be exploring the potential of a digital infrastructure required for an end-to-end connected ecosystem.

“We are fully equipped to deliver the best-in-class solutions for smart and sustainable cities. Together with CBD Punjab, we are excited to contribute to the province’s digital transformation journey,” Syed Ali Naseer said.

This partnership will see Jazz act as the lead consultant in assisting LCBDDA to explore the relevant digital infrastructure required for this smart city project and identify revenue generating opportunities.

The MoU also entails the exploration of areas where Jazz can become the digital ICT service provider for enterprises in LCBDDA, he added.

“Partnering with Jazz, VEON will InshaAllah unfold tremendous opportunities in the field of ICT and digital transformation for this mega project of national importance,” Imran Amin said.

LCBDDA, also known as CBD Punjab, is Pakistan’s first central business district, where the private sector will be provided with bespoke and innovative real estate to contribute to the national development.
