Chinese firms working on CPEC to keep liaison with NAVTCC

Islamabad: The Chinese companies engaged in the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) will maintain a constant liaison with the National Vocational and Technical Training Commission (NAVTCC) so that thousands of trained youth are employed in various projects there.

This was said by the Chinese Ambassador Yao Jing during his meeting with Executive Director of National Vocational and Technical Training Commission Zulfiqar Ahmad Cheema in his office here on Wednesday.

The meeting continued for more than an hour in which technical education and training issues and production of skilled workforce were discussed in detail. On the occasion, the National Vocational and Technical Training Commission executive director informed the Chinese ambassador about the recent reforms and activities in the TVET sector.

He said the CPEC would create thousands of jobs for the skilled youth of Pakistan and open new vistas of prosperity and development. He added that the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor plan was a living proof of friendship between Pakistan and China and the entire region would benefit from it. "Keeping in mind the needs of the CPEC, we are training more and more youth in the fields of construction and hospitality," he added.

He said with the help of China, the commission would set up world-class technical and vocational institutions along the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor route and in every industrial zone, which would enable us to meet the needs of skilled workforce for mega projects.

The Chinese ambassador appreciated the steps taken under the present leadership of the NAVTTC. He said the Chinese companies engaged in CPEC project would keep a constant liaison with National Vocational and Technical Training Commission so that thousands of trained youth were employed in various projects there.

He said China would help establish world class technical institution in Islamabad where thousands of skilled people would be trained so that they can meet the needs of local and global markets.

He said China would help transform the NTB into a state of the art technical institution along the lines of the Tianjin University. "China will soon initiate special bilateral training programmes for the trainers of Pakistan, which will enable hundreds of Pakistani workers to get training of modern machinery and equipment each year," he said. Zulfiqar Cheema thanked the Chinese ambassador on the cooperation of China and presented a memento to him.
