Thousands learning Chinese to reap CPEC benefits

Thousands learning Chinese to reap CPEC benefits

LAHORE: As the momentum on the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor gears up, interest in learning the Chinese language among the youth is increasing.

The Technical Education and Vocational Training Authority (Tevta) is providing free of cost three-month courses in six districts of the Punjab, which is gaining a lot of traction.

Purpose to start this language programme is to make the already trained skilled labour force of Pakistan more acceptable in the Chinese market.

Chairman Tevta, Irfan Qaiser Sheikh said till now 4000 youth have learned the language and in one year period 15000 more will be able to speak and understand the language. This will help them get jobs in Chinese companies working on the CPEC, he added.

The students are of the view that the Chinese is not difficult and the CPEC is opening opportunities for us.

The massive CPEC project is expected to create thousands of job opportunities and generate economic activity in Pakistan.
