Nuclear scientist Dr Samar Mubarakmand urged Tameer-e-Millat Foundation (TMF) to build technical training institutes in Balochistan so that the locals could have better opportunities for vocational and technical training to explore and utilise precious minerals like copper, gold and coal in the province for prosperity of the nation.
He was addressing attendants at a fund raising dinner hosted by TMF. Mubarakmand stressed the need for promoting science and technology in the country to rapidly move towards high growth rate.
