Pakistan is Willing to Upgrade Higher Education System

US Ambassador Donald launch International Summit on Higher Education.

The summit, which was organized by the US funded Higher Education System Strengthening Activity (HESSA), highlights the fluid nature of learning and employment and looks at how universities might reposition themselves in this constantly shifting environment.

The US and Pakistan have been partners for 75 years, as Ambassador Donald Blome noted. “We must continue to help youth attain their full potential in a country where more than 60% of the population is under 30,” he said.

Minister Iqbal stated that the Pakistani government is open to enhancing the higher education system and is exploring various possibilities to take use of the nation’s vast youth potential. He admired the US government’s 75-year alliance with Pakistan and rejoiced at the support the US government has given to academics through targeted investments in higher education.

He continued by saying that in order to speed up this progress, academic institutions, the public, and commercial sectors should work together. Mr. Iqbal gave the responsibility of improving higher education to Pakistani officials.

In order to boost graduate employability, the U.S. government and the Higher Education Commission of Pakistan (HEC) will continue to collaborate, according to HEC Chairman Dr. Mukhtar Ahmed.

The ultimate objective of an institute, according to Utah State Senator Keith Grover of the United States, “is to empower youngsters with the essential skills so they may constructively contribute to the workforce both locally and globally.”

With an emphasis on improving universities’ ability to provide market-driven education, research, and graduate employability, HESSA is executed in conjunction with 16 Pakistani public institutions and other stakeholders. It is funded by the United States through USAID.
