'Pakistan has progressed in higher education'

ISLAMABAD, Aug 16: Pakistan has progressed considerably in higher education and has become a role model for developing countries due to positive policies of the government, said Higher Education Commission (HEC) Chairman Dr Attaur Rehman.

He said this in a ceremony in which 45 Pakistani students were awarded scholarships (Erasmus Mundus Scholarship 2007-2008) by the European Commission. Among the 45 scholarship holders, 41 are boys. "First time a digital library has been introduced in which 23,000 international journals and 40,000 books are available to equip students with the latest information," he said.

European Commission ambassador Jan De Kok was chief guest on the occasion. Kok stressed the needs for continued cooperation with Pakistan in the field of education and other fields. When asked why Pakistan did not have a 'Pakistan window' in their scholarship programme unlike India, he said their union was cooperating in many projects other than education in Pakistan. "Education is not only one sector in which we are cooperating but in countries like India we are only cooperating in the field of education," he said.

K Bhuiyan, attaché (economic cooperation) of the European Commission delegation to Pakistan, introduced the Erasmus Mundus Programme on the occasion. About 42 students from Pakistan were enrolled under this programme for the year 2006-07 through its 'Asia Window' out of which 33 were boys and nine girls. Daily times
