The CTG-Pakistan programme, established by CTG, aims to support the Belt and Road initiative and the development of China-Pakistan Economic Corridor, in which CTG is an active participant.

The scholarship was established to assist Pakistani students in completing their studies and achieving their dreams, while also contributing to the development and implementation of clean energy, Gwadar Pro reported on Monday.

The programme is the first full scholarship programme in Pakistan funded by Chinese enterprises with long-term planning. CTG will contribute at least $1 million to fund up to 100 students with full scholarships.

So far, the company has sponsored two groups of 33 Pakistani students to complete their studies, and 13 of the graduates are currently employed at Karot Hydropower Plant.
