He maintained that it was a good omen that a large number of our women were coming forward in the universities and professional institutions, and this is an encouraging development for all of us.
Sardar Masood Khan said that the youth would have to demonstrate outstanding performance because of the favorable learning environment and the right mentors. “You must excel and try to find your bearings. It is important that you have the right mentors and exposure for growth,” he asserted.
While advising the youth to gain self-confidence, the AJK president said that they would have to focus on their self-development and capacity building to compete with others and emphasized they must invest in themselves and towards building their capacity.
He went on to say that development of human resources in Azad Kashmir would not only make the state prosperous but it would also put the whole of Pakistan on the track of progress and prosperity.
“We have crossed several milestones of socio-economic development in the liberated territory during the last few decades and the journey still continues,” he said.
Khan maintained that if the youth gain experience in different fields, they can play a useful role in the CPEC and other such projects because numerous job opportunities in the field of basic infrastructure are rising under these projects.
