The Chairperson of the Punjab Higher Education Commission (PHEC), Prof. Dr. Shahid Munir, made a significant announcement at a recent event hosted by the Pakistan-Japan Socio-Economic Association. The commission would suggest including Japanese in the curricula.

Dr. Munir went into more detail about the reasoning behind this choice, emphasizing how it could improve trade ties between Pakistan and Japan. Pakistan wants to strengthen its ties with Japan’s renowned machinery, electronics, and automotive industries by incorporating the Japanese language.

Dr. Munir also provided information on the ongoing initiatives to improve the educational infrastructure and boost enrollment. In preparing a skilled workforce, he emphasized the importance of technical and vocational education. The inclusion of the Japanese language in higher education facilities would open up job opportunities for Pakistani graduates in the manufacturing, engineering, and information technology fields.

Speaking Japanese fluently would be essential for obtaining scholarships and promoting a strong socioeconomic alliance between the two countries.

The Pakistan Institute of Fashion and Design (PIFD) recently held a thesis exhibition to highlight the outstanding creative work of its final-year students, according to other news. The projects on display in this exhibition, which is open until June 25, come from a variety of fields, including textile design, leather accessories and footwear, furniture design and manufacturing, fashion design, fashion marketing and merchandising, ceramic and glass design, and gem and jewelry design.

The showcase, which turned the PIFD campus into an exhibition area, drew a wide range of visitors, including businesspeople, academics, students, parents, and members of the general public. On the first day, visitors eagerly browsed each department’s galleries, admiring the graduating students’ artistic achievements.
