A 100-member youth delegation divided in four groups recently returned to Pakistan after successfully completing the tour of China under Prime Minister of Pakistan’s Kamyab Jawan Program. The delegation comprised of students belonging to NED University of Engineering & Technology, IBA, NUST, Khawaja Fareed University of Engineering and many other students from across the country along with some successful youth from different sectors including Punjab’s Minister Rai Taimoor Khan Bhatti and NED University’s students namely Bilal Ahmed Siddiqui, Ms. Hiba Lodhi, Abdul Basit and Maha Ali.
According to details, the Pakistani youth toured Tianmain Square Forbidden City, Technology Innovation Center and City Sub Center Planning Exhibition, besides having the opportunity to witness the Chinese Culture, historical buildings, particularly the technological developments in artificial intelligence and Chin’s 2035 Plan for its own capital city. A musical night and opera performance were also arranged in honor of Pakistani youth delegates.
A Final Year student of Industrial & Manufacturing Department from NED University Bilal Ahmed Siddiqui, while touching upon some salient features and significance of delegation’s visit to China, commented that on completion of China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC), the relations between Pakistan and China are likely to improve further hence, it is the need of the hour that youth from both the countries must carry out extensive studies of each other’s culture. He noted that during the said visit, he found that Pakistani youth has absolutely no command over the Chinese language and same was the case with Chinese youth, resulting in a huge communication gap between the two nations.
‘Keeping in view the significance of CPEC project, there is a dire need that the inhabitants of both countries must have complete command on each other’s languages. It is really heartening to see that Pakistani and Chinese governments have taken the initiatives to offer Chinese language learning facilities in Pakistan and Urdu language learning facilities in China as well.
