He mentioned that the role of the intern students would basically be of ambassadorial nature where they will represent and work for their countries while sitting in the COMSATS Secretariat.

Mr. Farhan Ansari, Senior Assistant Director, Programmes, in his presentation, introduced COMSATS and its statutory bodies, and discussed its mandate and vision.

She also presented the capacity building events of COMSATS and the COMSATS Network of International Centres of Excellence. Mr. Tajammul Hussain, Advisor Programmes, discussed in detail various opportunities available for Member States and a brief history of COMSATS over the past 23 years.

He spoke eloquently on the challenges which are faced by COMSATS and the ways in which it can charter its way forward.
