Ubaid Qureshi, Delegation Leader and President of the Youth Parliament of Pakistan commented:
‘For the delegation, it was important to have a platform for young people to speak and get a sense of the international community’s perspective on Pakistan. The cross-level discussion develops an understanding of different socio-economic factors and recent developments in Pakistan that are important for civil society at home as well as the overseas community.
These initiatives are a pillar of strength when it comes to nurturing meaningful relationships and promoting mutual understanding between our two nations. They also symbolise a commitment to strengthening the bridge of friendship between Pakistan and the United Kingdom, while empowering the youth to play an instrumental role in shaping the future of their countries.
The Youth Parliament of Pakistan was enthusiastic about returning home and implementing the invaluable insights gained during this visit to pave the way for greater youth engagement in a more prosperous Pakistan.’
