Islamabad—Federal Minister Planning, Development and Reform Prof. Ahsan Iqbal Tuesday asked Higher Education Commission (HEC) to devise a Strategic Framework-2025 for higher education to make it compatible with the evolving worldwide trends.
The fast changing developments and technology are re-defining the paradigm in higher education and Pakistan needs to catch up with the changing paradigm through a new vision for higher education like the one the government introduced in the form of Vision-2025 for sustained economic growth and inclusive development. Ahsan Iqbal stated this while chairing a meeting to review the higher education projects in the country.
He held the view that this strategic framework-2025 would set the direction and destination of higher education for next ten years. HEC should hold consultation with the top minds in higher education, he said adding this strategic framework would provide guidelines for implementation of five years plan and other short term plans in higher education.—APP
