Education expo in April will bring together important stakeholders, says governor


January 14, 2018

Sindh Governor Mohammad Zubair has said that the proposed education expo in April this year would be an important milestone in the country’s education sector as it will bring together all stakeholders from universities, colleges, schools and other education institutes.

He was talking to a delegation of the Rizhao and Binzhou Polytechnics of China at the Governor House on Saturday. The delegation members included Binzhou Polytechnic vice president Xuan Yonghua, Wang Jinbo, Liu Jian and Li Wenyan, Rizhao Polytechnic vice president Han Zhen, Wang Fen, Mou Shengyong, Liu Xiangze and Lei Yuefeng.

The participation of Chinese academic institutions, close cooperation among universities of China and Pakistan and specially those situated in Sindh were discussed in detail during the meeting.

The Sindh governor while lauding the April’s education expo said that the presence of more than 100 Chinese educational institutions would make it a successful endeavour. He assured his full cooperation and assistance for this expo.

While praising the China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC), the governor said the CPEC was another proof of the close bilateral relations and friendship of the two countries which was being further cemented by every passing moment.

Zubair offered the cooperation of Sindh’s public universities for promoting the cause of the CPEC and said that: “We are ready to assist in this regard by arranging seminars, workshops lectures and training sessions.”

He also offered Chinese universities to establish their campuses in the education city, saying it would be another mile stone in promotion of the higher education in Sindh.

The governor said Karachi was the economic hub of Pakistan and after the establishment of law and order in this megalopolis there was a very conducive atmosphere for investment. “Efforts are being made to return Karachi to its past glory by holding social, cultural educational, recreational and sports activities,” he added.

Citing the example of the recently held international media conference, the governor said that an ‘International Squash Tournament and Pakistan International Film Festival’ would be held in the next two months, prior to the education expo. “These events are aimed at making Karachi a city of lights,” he added

He said the CPEC was a game changer in real sense, not only for China and Pakistan but also for the whole region. “China is an economic superpower and Pakistan could learn a lot from its experiences in every sector,” he added.

The governor was informed that both the institutions had signed memorandum of understands (MoUs) for the promotion of education with the Bahria University, the DHA Suffa University, the Iqra University, and the Sir Syed University and Indus University, while talks were being held with the Institute of Business Administration (IBA) for the same process.

It was further informed that as many as 14,000 students were enrolled in the Rizhao Polytechnic with 904 faculty members. “It is providing education in finance, business management, engineering, tourism and other sectors,” it was further informed.

The governor was also informed that the Binzhou Polytechnic had an enrolment of over 15,000 students with 949 faculty members and it had 41 departments in science, engineering, agriculture, medicine, finance, architecture, arts and navigation.
