“Belt and Road Initiative is an incredibly progressive project and will open countless economic, investment, trade, and social opportunities for our region and the world at large. CPEC is an integral part of BRI and CPEC’s successful evolution and implementation testifies to the fact that BRI will turn into a great success going forward’, this was stated by Pakistan’s Consul General to Chengdu, Muhammad Mudassir Tipu. He delivered these remarks in his keynote address at 2018 Belt and Road Education Co-operation Forum, held in Chengdu.
The two-day Forum inaugurated today was organized by one of Southwest China’s premier institutions, Sichuan University. Other speakers at the inauguration ceremony included Vice President of Sichuan University Yan Shijing and Vice Mayor of Chengdu Ms. Liu Xiaoliu. Leading professors, research scholars, and experts from universities and research institutes all over the world are attending the Belt and Road Forum.
While speaking at the occasion the CG added that: “As world’s oldest civilization, China’s understanding of the systems of thoughts and knowledge has been very unique. In recent years it has also invested a great deal in research, innovation, and technology and is one of the world’s leaders in AI and robotics technology”.
Highlighting that Sichuan University was making impressive strides in research and education, CG emphasized it was imperative that educational ties between Pakistan and Sichuan were deepened and broadened.
