Aptec Holdings has recently completed a two day channel event in Pakistan, to launch its activities as the newly signed sole distributor for Symantec in the country.

The distributor hosted over 60 reseller partners at the events in Karachi and Lahore, which were intended to introduce Symantec's latest solutions, and train resellers in the technology.

The event included sessions on endpoint security, and Symantec's offerings for the data centre.

According to Aptec, the IT market in Pakistan is expected to grow 35% year-on-year as of 2010.

Essam Baghdady, VP of Aptec Group said: "While the IT market showed contracting trends worldwide by 3% and the European market was even hit harder, the Middle East and Africa on the other hand saw a 5% growth in spite of the worldwide recession. On a positive note the IT spending according to researchers and analysts hit the bottom and now is on the recovery road. Pakistan showed promising indications and the potential growth outlook with the ICT sector is estimated at $12.8 billion.
