‘No nation can progress without women participation’

FAISALABAD: The women in Pakistan are blessed with tremendous talent who can play an active role in the development as no nation can progress without the active participation of women, said Sadia Saifuddin, member of Regent University of California, USA.

She said this while addressing a workshop titled ‘students leadership’ chaired by University of Agriculture Faisalabad (UAF). The event was organised by Office of Research Innovation and Commercialization and Institute of Business Management Sciences (IBMS) at New Senate Hall.

She called for following the injections of Islam so that we can prove our mettle in every sphere of life.

UAF Vice Chancellor Prof Dr Iqrar Ahmad Khan said the UAF was taking all possible measures to develop the leadership qualities among the students particularly women.

The students are the future builder and we are focusing on entrepreneurial skills among the students so that they can become self employed. The step would also help alleviate the poverty from the country.

He said that the work on the Centre for Advanced Studies in Food Security at UAF was in the full swing that will help in increasing the agricultural production of the country.
ORIC Director Prof Dr Asif said that half of the population of Pakistan consists of women. If we sharpen their skills, it would prove hallmark for the country.

Dr Akhar from USA said that the hunger is the areas of the concern across the globe. The skilled manpower is imperative to face the situation.
