Book ‘A Fountain of Knowledge’ by Ameena Saiyid launched

Karachi—The launch of the book, titled ‘A Fountain of Knowledge’ by Ms. Ameena Saiyid, Managing Director of Oxford University Press Pakistan, hosted by 21st Century Business and Economics Club. A statement on Sunday said this book launch marked the updated edition of the book authored by Adil Ahmed in 2006.
Noted businessman Majyd Aziz introduced the speakers. Dr Ishrat Husain, former governor of the State Bank of Pakistan, lauding Ameena’s contribution most heartily, said that a country such as Pakistan where the rate of female participation in national life was so low, could never be put on the road to development.
What the country direly needed, he said, was more women like Mrs Saiyid to ensure that the nation could actually progress in the right direction.
‘When Ameena took over the Oxford University Press Pakistan in 1988, she gave the organisation a new direction and applied very stringent standards’, Dr Husain said, while also lauding her struggle to uphold the sanctity of Intellectual Property Rights.—APP
