Islamabad: Federal Mister for Professional and Technical Training Mia’n Riaz Hussain Pirzada visited today Pakistan Polytechnic Institute Chiniot and delivered a cheque amounting 3 million rupees on the behalf of Prime Minister of Pakistan, to the Principal for uplifting of the Institute and its faculty. On the occasion Federal Minister said that the need of Professional and Technical Training Ministry was exact in that hour when first polytechnic college established in the country and first scholar accomplished his degree in technical training.

Federal Minister said that Pakistan is the only country in the world where more than 70 percent population falls in the age bracket of 15 to 30 years so our energetic labour force is more than any other country in the world and the only need is that to provide the youth the facilities to harness their talent for the economic growth of the country. Federal Minister told that we have signed memoranda of understanding with Russia, China, India, and European Union and lately with British Council to provide our youth foreign training exposure. Federal Minister said, “this is nascent and youngest Ministry in the Country but with tremendous efforts of my team particularly Minster of State Sardar Shahjehan and Federal Secretary Qamar Zaman Choudhry we have produced results more than any oldest Ministry and up until now my Ministry has completed more than 50 training courses and thousands of people benefitted only in nine months. Federal Minister said, “ in next few months I will be successful to give matchless and unprecedented gift to the masses of Pakistan in the form of first ever University of Professional and Technical Training.
