China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) is surely a plan that will benefit both these nations; well I guess not only these 2 nations but also other countries of Asia like India Afghanistan and Iran are also going to enjoy certain amounts of benefits produced by this plan.
So now let’s just have a quick view of what CPEC really is and what exceptional reimbursements it promises to the world.
Basically, it is said that China- Pakistan Economic Corridor is a regional connectivity framework, which will not only benefit the nations that direct part in this plan but also those countries who are sharing borders with these nations which are Pakistan and China.
The highlights of this plan suggest that it aims to enhance the geographical linkage to a greater extent.
By building improved roads, railway and air transportation with additional comforts to be provided. Indulging better transportation is for the reason of exchanges of growth and people to people contact, enhancing understanding through academic, cultural and regional knowledge and culture, activity of higher volume of flow of trade and businesses, producing and moving energy to have more optimal businesses and enhancement of cooperation by win-win model will result in well connected, integrated region of shared destiny, harmony and development.
This plan also tends to make sure frequent and free exchange to clear all the hindrance in this friendly initiative.
Well for sure this is not a just a step to develop peace and harmony as it demands some serious investments so its financial outcomes will be drastic. But for the time being these harmonic benefits can’t be overruled.
The world is aware of the revolution this economic corridor is going to incorporate in the trading industry, therefore all the business giant companies are looking for their investment scope in the road-map. No one wants to miss out such a golden opportunity.
Now the game has already begun under the name of harmony great money will be made.
Well, whatever the Idea is one thing is certain this will only bring good to Pakistan and China.
It will surely benefit both the nations but still they need to play smart as roads of Pakistan’s journey have never been so smooth and straight.
Means still more drama to come this way. But for now, we appreciate the work being done and pray for it to continue the same way.
The growing popularity of Chinese language in Pakistan
National University of modern languages NUML started introduced a new course of teaching the Chinese language to the Pakistani students in September 1970.
Back than learning mandarin was something a young student would be interested in until or unless he really needed to. Namely, Confucius Institute, Islamabad — the rebranded Chinese language department, this new initiative was hard to understand at that time so there were only 13 students enrolled in this course.
With the passage of years, a great shift of interest was observed in this course, one of the reasons may the cumulative Pakistan-China friendship. Youngsters believed that there are better scope perspectives in this area of studies as the friendship between these two nations can give rise to certain mega projects in Pakistan where language will be a key factor to clasp those opportunities.
Till now many have benefited them with this course.
“Thousands of students have learned Mandarin [at NUML] and have gone on to pursue professional roles in different fields.” Says Rasheeda Mustafa, who has been teaching Mandarin at NUML for the past 19 years.
Now the NUML is observing the greatest interest in Mandarin. With CPEC introduced, this course is also in high demand by the youth of the nation.
Perhaps to match this increasing demand, the Chinese government had contributed towards the expansion of the Confucius Institute at NUML back in 2015.
“This center will contribute towards cementing Pak-China relations,” Zhang Daojian, a lecturer at the institute.
Sources suggest that the enrollment has doubled since last few years due to keen interest was shown by students. The reason for this growing interest is the investments made by China especially in the northern areas of the nation. This year, 460 students have been admitted into the program, 300 in the morning and 160 in the evening.
Not only in the capital but other metropolitan cities of the country are observing something similar.
Now when the demand is so high not only universities but schools have also started the same practice as introducing the Chinese language as part of their studies. Roots International School has started the program keeping in view the significance and influence of Chinese Mandarin.
