May 27, 2024 (MLN): Federal Minister for Planning and Development, Professor Ahsan Iqbal has articulated the government's vision to provide a digital platform to the youth, enabling them to propel Pakistan into the world's top ten economies by 2047.

He said that the government is committed to providing the youth with advanced education, digital training, and equal employment opportunities to prepare them for future challenges.

According to a press release issued, he emphasized that nations with fewer resources have surpassed Pakistan because of their political stability and continuity of policies.

In contrast, Pakistan has suffered from internal discord and extremism due to political instability and lack of policy continuity.

The minister highlighted that visionary long-term plans like Vision 2010 and Vision 2025 were never fully implemented.

Speaking at the University of Narowal during a ceremony where laptops were distributed to students under the Prime Minister's Laptop Scheme, Professor Iqbal said economic ties with Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Kuwait, Qatar, and China are being restored, and the stock market is reaching new heights, reflecting the confidence of both domestic and international investors in the government's policies.

Record funds have been allocated for higher education, with plans to establish universities in every district and institutions for technical education.

Laptops are being distributed on merit, with options for students to purchase on easy installments if they do not qualify on merit.

The initiative aims to equip the youth with digital technology for employment.

Professor Iqbal praised the University of Narowal as a model of social progress, women's empowerment, and economic development.

Between 2013 and 2018, several university campuses were established in various districts of Baluchistan.

Professor Iqbal noted that Pakistanis are hardworking and intelligent.

As part of the Prime Minister's Laptop Scheme, Professor Iqbal distributed laptops to 77 students at the University of Narowal.

Vice Chancellor Professor Muhammad Younas Rana, in his welcome address, lauded Professor Iqbal's exemplary contributions to education and thanked him for providing excellent educational facilities to the students of the University of Narowal.

The event was attended by students, their parents, National Assembly member Chaudhry Anwar-ul-Haq, Provincial Assembly member Ahmad Iqbal Chaudhry, Pir Syed Azhar-ul-Hassan Gillani, and notable figures from the political, social, and academic spheres.
