President Mamnoon Hussain urged the students and youth to acquire modern education to better position themselves for reaping the benefits of China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC). He emphasized that fields of information technology and science could positively contribute in the overall socio-economic development of the country.

The president expressed these views while talking to a delegation of Sindh Madressatul Islam University (SMIU) which called on him here at the Aiwan-e-Sadr. He advised the students to prepare themselves to fully benefit from the opportunities and possibilities emerging from the landmark China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) project.

The president said that association of Quaid-e-Azam with SMIU made it stand out from other educational institutions and appreciated the institution for imparting quality education to its students. He underscored the need for having a highly qualified and trained faculty for achieving excellence in education.

The president urged the students to excel in modern sciences to carve out a niche for themselves and for their country in the comity of nations.

He advised the female students to acquire maximum education even if they have to go abroad but never compromise on their national and religious identity.

The president underlined that CPEC would prove to be a game changer for the region which is reflective in the fact that many other countries have expressed interest to link up with this mega project.

He expressed optimism that Pakistan will emerge as the most important country in the region after operationalisation of CPEC, and that the youth should be ready to benefit from this opportune moment in country’s history.

The president urged the youth to defend CPEC against nefarious designs of the enemies of Pakistan and stand by the government in completion of projects under it.
