STAFF REPORT FBD: Pakistan and India need to cooperate in various fields especially science and technology in order to learn from each other’s experiences, said President Indian National Science Academy, Dr Krishan Lal.
“India has 800 million literate people, which is more than literate population of European countries in numbers. More than 350 multinational companies are operating around the world being run by Indians,” Dr Lal said while addressing a gathering of Deans and Directors of University of Agriculture Faisalabad (UAF) during his recent visit to the varisity.
He mentioned that the West after World War II had joined hands for cooperation in the fields of science and technology, so both India and Pakistan should enter into cooperation in the field of science and technology.
On the occasion, he seconded the idea floated by UAF Vice Chancellor Prof Dr Iqrar Ahmad Khan that both the countries should set up a centre at border for showcasing the latest agricultural technologies to benefit each other.
He said that under the Inspire Programme, his country is picking up students from 8th and 9th classes from each board in a bid to polish their skills in science, which would help them become a good scientist. The collaborative programme between both the institutions should be kicked off, he added.
