High Commission to send Six Promising British Pakistani Youth on Pakistan Trip: Syed Ibne Abbas
Six promising British-Pakistani youth will be sent to Pakistan this year on sponsorship of the Pakistan High Commission, London. This was announced by H.E. Syed Ibne Abbas, Pakistan High Commissioner to the UK at a third day-long Councillors Convention held in London on 24 February 2018.
The initiative has been named as “Explore Pakistan”.
Speaking about this programme, the High Commissioner said:
“The initiative aims at connecting the British Pakistani youth with their country of origin as well as their cultural heritage. Under this programme, young persons from the diaspora will be able to explore various facets of life in Pakistan and know more about progress and development taking place in the country. It would also enable them to build bridges between the peoples of Pakistan and the UK.”
Explore Pakistan programme would offer a unique opportunity for the students to experience development and progress in various areas, including infrastructure business, trade, investment, financial and information technology and social entrepreneurship.
To select suitable candidates, the High Commissioner has formed a committee comprising Officers of the High Commission, to formulate a merit-based selection criterion and work out other modalities of the programme. More information about the programme will be shared through media and Mission’s website in due course.
