The PTI chief, who had earlier established Namal College a year ago, formally announced the establishment of Namal Knowledge City which would be completed by 2020. At this occasion, the Bradford University vice-chancellor, Bradford University programme coordinator and members of Namal College board of directors (BoDs) were present.
