Zia Ullah Khan Bangash, the former Adviser to the Chief Minister of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa on Science and Information Technology, announced that the international IT company Affinity has started investing in the province to generate employment opportunities for the youth.


According to the details, the agreement was signed in the presence of Bangash by the Managing Director of the IT Board, Dr. Ali Mahmood, and an official of Affinity.

The former adviser addressed a gathering at an event that was held in connection with the signing of the agreement between the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Information Technology Board and Affinity and highlighted the efforts made by the provincial government to boost the IT sector.

He said that Affinity is establishing a sub-office in Peshawar in collaboration with the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Information Technology Board, which will allow it to start investments in the province.


Bangash called this initiative ‘a great achievement of the provincial government’.

He also declared that the MoU would soon be signed by the provincial Chief Minister (CM), Mahmood Khan, along with the EFTI Chief, Zia Chishti, at the CM House in Peshawar.

For god's sake - Afiniti is a well know company run by a very Patriotic Pakistan American, Zia Chisti. If people knew half of his story you'll second guess yourself on raising the above point. He gave up money, title and prestige when his board wanted to leave Pakistan for Costa Rica. He resigned and retained his PK operation (instead of shutting it down as asked by his Board) and pivoted it into TRG and now eventually into Afiniti. Come on guys. It is exactly people like Zia that we need if Pakistan is to make a turn for the better.

Some people are just unbelievable. So bad that it’s good comedy.
