Three Pakistani officials visited Andover this past week as one of their last stops in a six-week tour of US government operations, according to an article in the Eagle Tribune.
The three officials had a special interest during school visits because education is one of the top priorities for reform in Pakistan.
The three state officials, Zafar Ali, Habibullah Khan and Qayyum Khan, cooked and ate a dinner with town manager Reginald "Buzz" Stapczynski and selectmen at Stapczynski's home. They also visited spots such as the Addison Gallery and Memorial Hall Library, and took part in Memorial Day events on Monday.
The three officials will be heading off to Washington D.C. in their last stop of their cultural exchange, which was partially funded by a grant through the Massachusetts Municipal Association.
