To meet the challenge of keeping abreast with new technological advancement and to develop and progress in today's knowledge-based economic world, Pakistan needs a strong, vibrant and modern education system, he added.

"What the country expects from educational institutions is not merely traditional education, learning and disseminating knowledge rather they must be engaged in generating meaningful research which is relevant to the country's needs and offer indigenous solutions to our problems. In this context, universities are actually the think tanks for devising policies in all spheres of business," he added.
