LAHORE: Focusing on higher education could help eliminate terrorism, illiteracy, poverty and unemployment which could lead to the progress of the country, Punjab Governor Sardar Muhammad Latif Khosa said on Monday. The government wanted to increase funding for this purpose, he added.

We have a passionate youth, doctors and engineers, and government alone cannot do anything, it is the combined efforts which are required.” The governor said that the UET was a state of the art university and playing a vital role in the development of the country.
Khosa, along with the UET Vice Chancellor Lt Gen (r) Muhammad Akram Khan, visited the Architectural Engineering and Design Department, Mechanical Engineering Department, IB&M, Auditorium Complex Hall and Incubation Centre and appreciated the achievements of the UET.
