Local talent

This letter refers to the article ‘Eight steps for better IT’ (May 13, 2024) by Dr Imran Batada. The writer makes a very good suggestion by calling for local IT vendors to be given priority over international ones. But the problem is our government and leadership never understands the importance of local talent. This is arguably down to our inferiority complex.


It is really very sad that we cannot seem to realize the importance of our own people’s talent even though they have the capabilities to do things far better than most. Truly, outsiders can never do our jobs better than us because they cannot understand more about local circumstances and dynamics than we do.
