KARACHI: Promotion of Chinese language would no doubt be fruitful in further boosting the bilateral relations between Pakistan and China. Both the countries needed to exchange researchers of different departments of their universities, said Vice Chancellor Karachi University Dr Muhammed Qaiser.
“Confucius Institute for Chinese Language in Karachi University would establish ways for competition and innovative thinking in the region, which would consequently lead to economic, social and scientific development,” he said while addressing a meeting at VC Secretariat with the seven member delegation of the Chinese university, Sichuan Normal University, lead by President Sichuan Normal University Prof Dr Zhou Jieming.
It was decided in the meeting that bilateral arrangements would be made for educational trips of students and teachers of different departments, especially Visual Studies, Environmental Studies, Geology, Geography, Medicine, Zoology, Education, Bio-technology and Culture.
“The trips would give a chance to understand society and social traditions of both sides. Mutual relations, cultural, traditional, linguistic and everyday meetings would arouse awareness and understanding of social beauty. Meanwhile, the learning of Chinese language would steadily continue which would help understand the Chinese culture,” the VC said.
Qaiser expressed hope that cooperation between both the universities would help bring people from both the sides closer. Projects with the help of scholars, scientists, researchers and experts of both the countries would help in national development.
He also stressed on mutual exchange of students and teachers of both the universities.
