Malik Tahir Javaid said in the knowledge race in the 21st century and rapid globalisation, the quality of information technology-based education has to be enhanced to bring it at par with international standards for bringing the country out of the economic mire. To achieve the goal, the government would have to spend more on education as the existing budget is too meagre to produce desired and required results.
