Pakistan, China to benefit from people-to-people exchanges under CPEC

The China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) has showed maturity and stability of already deep high level friendship between Pakistan and China and since its launch, the flagship project has significantly improved Pakistan’s infrastructure and power sector.

“Along with these developments, human interaction between Pakistanis and Chinese has also increased, which is proving to be very helpful for people to understand each other from many angles beyond traditional ways,” Haroon Sharif, former Chairman BOI told  in an interview.

He said, the real people’s partnership would take place when they understand each other’s language and culture and added, as Chinese universities are already attracting Pakistani students, two- or four-years’ studying made them have much deeper understanding of Chinese culture and people

. He advised to scale up knowledge corridor by opening joint universities.
