In order to develop the entrepreneurship abilities of the youth, two government educational institutions in Karachi have partnered with China to introduce a number of courses, including e-commerce.
For the first time in Pakistani history, Chinese educators and business professionals will instruct young Pakistanis via these online courses on how to enter the Chinese market, how to market Chinese goods abroad, and how to develop new markets for Pakistani goods. This programme aims to increase learners’ knowledge and practical skills while giving them a variety of international business prospects.
Students are learning the Chinese language as part of this groundbreaking project so they will be prepared to move to China and eventually work there.
The Technical Board and the Dawood University of Engineering and Technology (DUET), with assistance from China’s Hunan Chemical and Vocational Technical College, are offering these courses, according to Dr Masroor Sheikh, Chairman of the Sindh Technical Board.
In order to dramatically reduce unemployment rates and make it easier for young people to continue their education and career path abroad, the Sindh Board of Technical Education and the DUET have developed collaboration between the educational institutions of the two nations.
Three courses are offered during a three-month period as part of the DUET curriculum. Each course comprises 32 hours of online instruction and 32 hours of in-person instruction, and it began on July 19. While the goal is to enrol 10,000 students, the current enrollment rate for one batch of training courses is 45 pupils.
The Chairman said that more English-speaking, IT-trained staff were needed by Chinese firms.
A Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on the Sino-Pak Dual Diploma Vocational and Technical Joint Educational Program was recently signed by China and Pakistan. The programme aims to improve bilateral relations between the two nations and make it possible for Pakistanis to take advantage of economic opportunities in China.
