KARACHI, (UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 24th Jan, 2022 ) :President Dr. Arif Alvi on Monday directed all of the educational institutions to focus on skill development of youth so as to put them on the path of development.
He expressed these views while addressing the 19th Convocation of the Iqra University (IU) held here at the main campus of the university.
He said that the main components of education must be the promotion of logical thinking and communication skills to polish the talent of the young generation as of total population of 64% is younger than 30 years.
Appreciating the performance of Iqra University, he said that as many as 36,000 students were graduating from the university, but, "here, I am asking the university to increase the number of graduates which might require more investment".
As 80% of the knowledge of dentistry is available online and it is being taught virtually, he said that such a model could be adapted for other subjects to impart education to the youth.
Being chancellor of more than 40 universities, he said that we had met the officials of HEC and Universities and discussed such things in the meetings.
Congratulating to graduating students, he said that the students are elites because you have got the education but a lot of people could not so far.
"You are graduated and you have to think of those people who could not get the education and you have to do something for them," the president said.
