For exchanging modern tools of theoretical basis and technology to support the education between Pakistan and Sri Lanka, the government of Pakistan is thinking to set up a world-class high-tech university in Sri Lanka. The university would be formed under the supports of the COMSATS university.
Maj. Gen. (Retd.) Dr, Shahid Ahmad Hashmat—the Pakistani High Commissioner in Sri Lanka while addressing a recent ceremony on the 79th National Day of Pakistan informed that modalities are being discussed with the related bodies in Sri Lanka for establishing a high-tech university here.
Besides, announcing the establishment of the university, Dr. Hashmat also said that the High Commission would be giving 1000 scholarships to Sri Lankan students in the various fields and would support the exchange programmes of faculty members and students.

The commissioner on the occasion also talked regarding the basis of strong ties between Pakistan and Sri Lanka. He said that the relationship between the two nations has been there for more than 2,000 years. He added that such relations are further boosted by the commonality of eternal values of universal love and peace, promoted both by Islam and Buddhism.
It is important to mention that COMSATS would be a key supporter for this project and the university already has got a good reputation in many countries across the world.
The university has the status of a public-sector degree-awarding higher education institution and the university has already got a charter by the Federal government of Pakistan in the year 2000.
