KARACHI: Vet­eran busi­ness­man and for­mer vice pres­i­dent of Karachi Cham­ber of Com­merce & Fed­er­a­tion of Cham­ber of Com­merce and In­dus­try, Khalid Tawab asked the uni­ver­si­ties to give pri­or­ity to bet­ter ed­u­ca­tional and train­ing fa­cil­i­ties to youths in ac­cor­dance with their men­tal ap­ti­tude. He said that to­day our youths, see­ing the pop­u­lar­ity of a par­tic­u­lar field, are get­ting ad­mis­sions in its de­gree program in large num­ber with­out any con­sid­er­a­tion, but they are ig­nor­ing the fact that if the de­mand for young peo­ple with de­grees in this field de­creases in the job mar­ket in the fu­ture, they will be dis­ap­pointed. There­fore, when en­rolling in uni­ver­si­ties, stu­dents should choose pro­fes­sions in which they can eas­ily get a job or start their own busi­ness. This he stated while he was talk­ing to the fac­ulty mem­bers of Mo­ham­mad Ali Jin­nah Univer­sity, Karachi (MAJU) dur­ing his visit of the Univer­sity yes­ter­day . On this oc­ca­sion, he also vis­ited to univer­sity li­brary, labs, class rooms and recorded in­ter­view to MAJU ed­u­ca­tional ra­dio sta­tion FM 97.6. Dur­ing his dis­cus­sion with univer­sity teach­ers, Khalid Tawab em­pha­sized to es­tab­lish an ef­fec­tive link be­tween Uni­ver­si­ties and Trade & In­dus­try sec­tor, so that tal­ented youths may be pro­vided to Trade & In­dus­try sec­tor to ful­fil the job mar­ket re­quire­ment, which will help to re­duce un­em­ploy­ment prob­lem among our youths. He said it is the right time to pro­vide tal­ented man­power by our uni­ver­si­ties to work in­side and out­side of the coun­try to im­prove soft im­age of the coun­try.He urged the stu­dents to re­frain from dream­ing of be­com­ing rich overnight as it takes a lot of time to get a bet­ter po­si­tion. He said that it is true that at present due to ris­ing un­em­ploy­ment among the youth of the coun­try, their frus­tra­tion is no­tonly in­creas­ing but most of them adopt­ing wrong path and in­crease in cy­ber crime is also an im­por­tant fac­tor in this re­gard which needs to be ad­dressed. Khalid Tawab was of the view that fu­ture of Pak­istan is very bright, there­fore, gov­ern­ment should gain the con­fi­dence of the trade and in­dus­try sec­tor to in­crease na­tional pro­duc­tion, so that more peo­ple can get em­ploy­ment op­por­tu­ni­ties.
