According to Guo Tianping, President of CQIPC, after the additional agreement is approved, the “1+2+1” pattern will be adopted, in which Pakistani students learn Chinese language and Chinese culture at USKT during the first year.

The smooth implementation of the project will promote the international sharing of China’s vocational teaching and certificating standards, accumulate experience and practices for higher vocational colleges to go global.

“Nations equipped with educational and technological paraphernalia have higher chances of success in all fields and secure a high pedestal in the comity of nations.

These opportunities come in the form of leadership, physical resources, and geo-economic conditions, and so on.

I hope this agreement will help us to develop technology-based skills in our students which will lead to the socio-economic growth of the region.”
