President Dr Arif Alvi has called for developing a liaison between higher educational institutions and market demands to determine the areas where more qualified graduates are needed.
Addressing 17th convocation of COMSATS University Islamabad today (Thursday), he asked the universities and higher Education Commission to do thorough research regarding job markets so that maximum seats can be allocated for that particular discipline of education.
The President said this will not only provide markets with local human resource but will also help overcome unemployment.
He urged the graduating students to fulfill their duty towards their country and serve it with passion and dedication.
Appreciating a large number of female graduates, Dr Arif Alvi said it is the responsibility of state and society to ensure an enabling environment for women so that they can utilize their talent for the betterment of their family as well as their country.
More than 1300 students from different disciplines were also awarded degrees on the occasion.
