He said modern education and technology had immense significance in today’s world, and urged the experts, intellectuals and youth to connect with the government through their suggestions.

He stressed the importance of research work to explore the potential of various subjects for the benefit of general public.

The prime minister said he would personally promote the Innovation Hub which would act as an effective platform for youth to excel.

PM Sharif said the brilliant ideas of youth would be incorporated in policy-making so as to formulate them in a more practical way.

Head of PM’s Strategic Reforms Salman Sufi said the main objective of establishing Innovation Hub under the vision of PM Shehbaz Sharif was “putting the public back in public policy”.

Besides himself, he said, the panel of experts comprising Faisal Bari, Mosharraf Zaidi, Shahrukh Wani and Ayesha Raza Farooq would finalize the ideas.

He said the selected proposals would be presented to the prime minister, which would later become part of the national policy.

This would be the first time that the general public would be involved in national policy-making, he added.

The youth present on the occasion gave their input about women development, tourism and hotel management, technology, and the need for improvement in educational curriculum.
