Here, I will track back the initial 15 years of Pacific Consulting & Trading (PCT) looking back to 2001 when I decided to quit from my Senior Management Position and decided to work as an entrepreneur it was really a great shock for my family and well-wishers however the issue got even more critical when I decided to focus on business opportunities arising under Foreign Aided Projects for Afghanistan Reconstruction and Rehabilitation.
As the saying goes the “Fortune favours the Brave”. In the initial period of 3- 4 years PCT was awarded contracts worth 4.5 billion YEN which were successfully executed.
In 2004 PCT had an opportunity to sign a reseller agreement of NCR products in Afghanistan market.
By the grace of God from a very humble beginning in “Banking IT Industry” of Afghanistan in 2005, today we are the
- Market leaders of ATM Products in Afghanistan.
- First switch installed in Afghanistan by PCT.
- Installation of First ATM in Afghanistan.
- Leading providers of new Innovative Banking software.
- Partner in installing “Afghanistan Payments Systems”.
- Partners in the growth of Afghan Banking Industry
Whenever the Afghan Banking history will be written the name of PCT will be in the forefront.
PCT has also installed the first “ATM” in Mogadishu, Somalia.
In Pakistan, during all these years we have worked with different partners in the rehabilitation of Earthquake sufferers by building Pre-fabricated model houses and taking care of the nutritional needs by providing them meal “ready to eat”.
The PCT has Pakistan Software Export Board approved call centers which are helping its US customers in building Sales and Customer support business.
PCT’s customers, Business partners and Principal are spread the world over. It has business relationships in “four continents” of the world which includes Asia, Africa, Europe and North America.
This arduous and difficult journey of the last 15 years as an entrepreneur needed a strong single-minded self-determination towards the achievement of goal, courage, understanding the potential of the market and a clear understanding of the difficulties of doing business in Afghanistan.
We are really grateful to all our customers and business partners for their excellent and timely support.
Last but not the least I am really thankful to my entire team member for their untiring efforts to ensure that timelines and quality go hand in hand.
In the end I am thankful to the Almighty as the efforts have paid dividends, brought prosperity and happiness and helped PCT to contribute to the health and education sector of the community.
It is time again to revisit our vision, mission and strategy as the dynamics of business are changing at a very fast pace.
May Allah bless PCT in its future endeavors, by introducing newer technologies to enhance the quality of life of the markets served.
Thank you & best regards,
Khaled Abdullah Khan
