Addressing the session, Coordinator-General CINVU Prof. Dr Muhammad Iqbal Chaudhry lauded the capacity of Muslim youth and said that the population under the age of 23 in the Islamic world was about 1.56 billion and that the network could play a key role to provide educational development in member countries.

President, Executive Committee CINVU and Vice-Chancellor Allama Iqbal Open University Prof. Dr Zia Ul-Qayyum remarked that the online or virtual mode of education was the most important need of the hour. He said the entire world realized that it was impossible to provide education without an online system during the COVID-19 pandemic.
