PKNOG is not a trade organization. Due to the technical as well as collaborative nature of the Internet, there is a strong need of a union of technology teams that can resolve, agree upon and ensure technical norms in the Internet world. Other bodies, like ISPAK (Internet Service Providers Association of Pakistan, PTA (Pakistan Telecommunication Authority) etc, will continue to play their respective roles.
