Technical or vocational education is the backbone of any country’s industrial development. The biggest example of this is our neighbor China. Which has a leading position in the world in manufacturing and exports.

President KATI Salman Aslam said that not only male students but also female students should now think of technical or vocational training. Only those who have the skills and abilities can somehow bear the financial burden of their family by becoming the breadwinner and arm of their home. He said that technical courses should be obtained according to one’s mental capacity and interest. Given the country’s situation, it is very important to acquire some kind of skill along with education.
