In her meeting with Ms Birgit Lamm, Professor Dr Bushra Mirza, Vice Chancellor of LCWU, explained the pertinent role of LCWU in upholding the cause of women empowerment through various projects untaken by the faculty of LCWU.

Dr Mirza and Ms Lamm also exchanged ideas about the on-going projects of LCWU with German Higher Education Institutions and explored about areas of mutual interest for future collaboration between LCWU and FNF.
