College fair held
Islamabad: A two-day college fair jointly organised by the US embassy and United States Educational Foundation in Pakistan (USEFP) concluded with a commitment to promoting educational and cultural exchange between the two countries.
The event, held at a local hotel, was attended by representatives from 11 American universities to encourage more students to study in the US.
This was the first time that so many American representatives have travelled together to Pakistan.
In addition to meeting hundreds of prospective students and parents in Islamabad, the university representatives spoke to hundreds more in Karachi, Lahore, and Peshawar via digital video conferences.
Speaking at the fair’s closing ceremony, Embassy Counselor for Public Affairs Mark Davidson said the United States had a long tradition of embracing foreign students.
“We want more Pakistani students to enrich our classrooms and benefit from our world-class universities. Our doors are open to Pakistanis to study in the US,” he said.
