Australian High Commissioner Margaret Adamson today presented 147 recently-returned Australia Awards scholars with achievement certificates.
“Education is an important connection between our two countries and peoples. I’m encouraged by the growing number of Pakistanis who make Australian educational institutions their first choice for their professional development,” High Commissioner Adamson said.
Higher Education Commission (HEC) Chairman Dr Mukhtar Ahmed welcomed Australia’s support to Pakistan’s development through the Australia Awards programme.
“Australia is providing opportunities to Pakistani professionals through these awards. Australia and Pakistan are cooperating in the education sector and we look forward to developing a mechanism that ensures an increase in collaborative initiatives taken by institutes in both countries,” Dr Ahmed said.
