Master plan for first knowledge city of Pakistan
Prime Minister Imran Khan on Monday shared the master plan of the first knowledge city in the country at the Namal University which is scheduled to be completed by the year 2027.
The Master Plan of my dream to build Pakistan’s first knowledge city, said PM Khan in his tweet while sharing the video of Namal city.
The plan of the city has been developed by globally renowned architect Tony Ashai who also thanked PM Khan for being a part of his dream.
“Thank you PM for giving me this opportunity to be part of your dream,” said Ashai. “A proud moment for Pakistanis and InshALLAH Namal Eu will be an institution that will produce the future leaders for Pakistan. And all this was made possible by Aleema Khan the force behind Namal.”
The Namal Knowledge City has been envisioned by Imran Khan as a center of academic excellence for the marginalized population residing in remote areas, said the official press release on the project.
After completion of the first phase, more than 10,000 students from deprived areas will benefit from the Knowledge City. The project will be environment-friendly with a state-of-the-art green structure.
The master plan sets a new precedent in urban planning, environmental stewardship, and provides innovative ways for fusing nature with city planning.
PM Khan while announcing the landmark project said that nations can only excel through knowledge economies. They do not progress or become rich by just selling cotton or textile products. The richness comes when you invest in the people and provide them higher education.
The project will be a landmark in the country’s academic history and will significantly increase the overall quality of education. PM Khan through the projects aims to create a world-renowned institution for local as well as international students.
