Government is committed to promote higher education as it is only way to earn a respectable place in comity of nations: Ahsan Iqbal
Islamabad, January 28, 2014 (PPI-OT): “Government is committed to promote higher education in the country as it is the only way forward to earn Pakistan a respectable place in the comity of nations”, said Prof. Ahsan Iqbal, Federal Minister for Planning, Development and Reform, while addressing as a Chief Guest at Urdu Debate Competition, organized by Federal Government College for Girls, F-7/2, Islamabad.
The federal Minister remarked, “We need to introduce performance culture in every sphere of our national life, because only actions can transform our destiny into a prosperous and developed nation. We should not lend ears to conspiracy theories floated by certain pessimists; rather we should gear ourselves up for better performance through better education, greater hard work, and improving our credentials on honesty and integrity”.
He added, “We are free to choose between success and failure. It is up to us whether we choose to excel others through hard work and better productivity or to lag behind by staying idle and inefficient”. Prof. Ahsan Iqbal explained, “Rule of law, knowledge, hard work and integrity are the recipes for development of a society.
Therefore, we need to focus on improving our national credentials on all these four yardsticks”. He added, “I am very much confident about the future of our nation, and pin high hopes in the latent potential of its talented population, especially the youth, who is fully capable of steering it out of crises”.
