Pakistan has huge potential when it comes to freelance services considering that 70% of the total population is under the age of 30.
In the recently published by Payoneer rankings for freelance markets, Pakistan has been ranked at 4th, well above India and Bangladesh. The list is topped by the United States with a 78% year over year revenue growth.
In its report, Payoneer wrote that the country’s freelancers increased from 4% in Q3 2018 to 42% in Q2 2019, attributing the growth to government’s efforts and youth’s increased participation in the economy.
This growth has been mainly fueled by Pakistani youth, thanks to a period of government investment in enhancing their digital skills, combined with a young population where 70% of people are aged under 30.
