Pakistan is a country which has been subject of much negative bigotry from western world.
International sports have been put on hold due terrorist activities and domestically Pakistan is facing numerous religious, financial, political and social crises. Amidst, multitude of odds, participation of international students in an international convention being held at Pakistan’s capital city, will send positive message to the world and inspire Pakistani students to work hard despite crises.
The students will get exposure to share their talents before international professionals and subject experts and they can get information about various academic courses and programmes from them in ISC and Expo 2018.
The event is organized on a grand scale; the organizers are working around the clock to make it a mega success as it is first ever in Pakistan. It is certainly an appreciable initiative of Pakistan’s Higher education commission; they are setting a high ranked example for other educational institutes to follow.
