Federal Minister for Science and Technology Fawad Chaudhry said on Monday that Nobel laureate Malala Yousufzai has been invited to a forthcoming sci-tech conference titled ‘Think Future’ in Pakistan.
“October 17 is the birth anniversary of Sir Syed Ahmed Khan (Muslim scholar in British India), the day the international science conference will be held,” he told a press conference in Islamabad.
The PTI leader said Malala will attend the conference, adding that he also wanted the people behind top tech companies to be a part of the event.
“We are sending invitations to Tesla owner Elon Musk, Bill Gates, CEO of Google and Facebook owner Mark Zuckerberg to attend the conference in Pakistan,” Chaudhry said.
He said the moot’s purpose was to attract the world’s attention towards Pakistan in the field of science and technology.
