Islamabad: Thirty female teachers from different educational institutions will pay two-week visit to China from Monday under Sino-Pak friendly exchange program, as a part of on-going efforts to strengthen people-to-people contacts at the students and academia level.
The visit was arranged by the Chinese embassy to familiarize the teachers with the Chinese education system and explore the educational opportunities for the Pakistani students. The delegation will visit various Universities in Urumqi, Chengdu, Shanghai and Beijing.
Wife of Chinese ambassador, Madam Bao Jiqing here on Thursday briefed the teachers’ delegation about the program and purpose of the visit, hoping they will act as ambassador of Pakistan to promote further goodwill between the two countries. The embassy on her personal initiative has already sent around 200 Pakistanis to China, including students, teachers, celebrities and doctors.
Highlighting the importance of China-Pakistan economic corridor, she said the two countries need to open educational Corridor as well, which is most important to push forward socio-economic development and improve the living conditions of their people.
Madam Bao said a good number of Pakistani students were being sent to China every year, hoping on their return home they will contribute to CPEC. “We need to pass on our brotherly iron-friendship from generations to generations. And they are confident the teachers could be life-changers for the youth,” she added. She hoped that the visiting teachers will shoulder the responsibility of bringing all the information back to their students and give them consultation as how to select Chinese Universities and apply for scholarships in the coming years.
Madam Bao Jiqing said there are several advantages of going to Chinese universities for Pakistani high-school graduates. These included the advantage of scholarships, friendship, nearby location as neighbours and reasonable tuition and living
