“China-Pakistan Economic Corridor is a start of a new era in the region”, said Interior Minister Ahsan Iqbal.
While CPEC is paving way for the development of the economic sector in Pakistan, recently they have broadened their horizon and entered the arena of education as well, under the wing of “CPEC Consortium of Business Schools.”
A two-day conference was held at the National University of Science and Technology (NUST), which is itself a part of the consortium, by the Higher Education Commission (HEC) to announce this.
The purpose of the conference was to initiate academic collaboration between Pakistan and China with Interior Minister Ahsan Iqbal and China Association of Higher Education (CAHE) President Du Yubo, as chief guests.
A total of 7 Pakistani Universities made it to the consortium;
