Addressing the inaugural session of the moot, Punjab Minister for Higher Education Syed Raza Ali Gillani appreciated the UMT management. He said Pakistan, though suffering with multifarious problems, including the shortage of power, was not left out in this race of scientific development. “In order to fulfill the energy needs of the country, the government has taken a giant step to produce more than that is required,” he said.

He said the government alone could not make a difference until the private sector joins hands.

He said the private sector universities like UMT were doing well in educational and scientific research and organising of conferences on various themes would payback in future as they were raising awareness and contributing to knowledge-economy.
