President Stresses For Pak-US Collaboration In Education, IT & Agriculture
The president stated that, for the mutual benefit of the two nations, the long-standing and extensive relationship between Pakistan and the US needed to be further strengthened.
The President stated on Friday that there should be more Pak-US collaboration in the areas of agriculture, education, and information technology. He also stressed the importance of both sides exploring the enormous potential.
The president made these comments during a meeting at the Aiwan-e-Sadr with a delegation from the California State Assembly that was in town and was led by Chris Holden. The president stated that, for the mutual benefit of the two nations, the long-standing and extensive relationship between Pakistan and the US needed to be further strengthened.
He was pleased that Punjab and California had agreed to a Sister-State Resolution on January 9, 2023. He claimed that Punjab had a great chance to draw American businesses and investors, boosting trade between the two nations.
He expressed the hope that the delegation’s visit would strengthen ties between California and Punjab and inspire other Assembly members to travel to Pakistan.
The president emphasised the importance of looking into ways to strengthen collaboration between the universities of the Pak-US and encourage more student exchanges.
The President proposed that US universities hold live lectures for Pakistani students to emphasise the value of collaboration in the field of education.
He also emphasised the steps taken to advance the social and economic status of women. He informed the delegation of Begum Samina Alvi’s efforts, who had been crucial in Pakistan in spreading the word about breast cancer.
The delegation emphasised the requirement for greater agricultural sector cooperation, including the transfer of agricultural technology. It also advocated for faculty and student exchange programmes to strengthen collaboration in the educational field.
The delegation stressed the necessity of working together to address the problems caused by climate change. Additionally, it disclosed that a sizable Punjabi diaspora lived in California and had been actively participating in the transportation and agricultural industries.
