Pakistani Youth makes up the major portion of the population. They can become the true assets to the nation if guided and educated in the right manner. The youth must be made aware of the rising fields such as IT, Blockchain development, Machine learning, etc. so they can compete with the developed nations. This notion was also put forward by Ismail Rahu, the Sindh Minister for Universities and Boards. During a seminar, the minister stated that Pakistan’s youth are extraordinarily talented and play an important part in the country’s technological prowess. It is pertinent to mention here that the minister was invited as a principal guest at the conclusion of a two-day seminar titled “Research and Technology Showcase 2022.”
