Executive Director of Commission on Science And Technology for Sustainable Development in South (COMSATS) Dr S M Junaid Zaidi will lead the Pakistani delegation in the upcoming silver jubilee summit of the COMSATS to be held in Ghana next month.
Dr Zaidi during an interactive meeting with media persons on Saturday highlighted the significance of the upcoming meeting of the representatives of 27 member states of the commission in Accra, the capital city of Ghana.
COMSATS is going to celebrate its Silver Jubilee next month and a summit in this connection would be held in Ghana on October 29, 2019, he said.
President of Ghana Nana Akufu Addo who is the current Chairperson of COMSATS would chair heads of states and governments meeting.
Dr Zaidi also briefed the media about COMSATS’ endeavours to expand its membership and enhance a culture of scientific research and cooperation among its member states.
Though an off-day, yet the COMSATS ED was there with his team on Saturday to seek media cooperation on his organization’s achievements and reiterate his faith in the talent of the Pakistani men and women of science. Pakistan he said could progress because its youths are enormously talented and there was a great potential to sensitise the world to rely on Science and Technology for progress and prosperity of the people in the less-developed countries in Asia, Latin America and Africa.
Dr Zaidi along with his delegation would participate in this meeting.
The agenda of the meeting was to enhance the outreach of COMSATS across the globe and devise ways to generate more interest of the developed countries to increase their level of cooperation with countries of the south.
