A total of 35 Pakistani students have now become owners of e-commerce companies in their country, thanks to Beijing and Islamabad’s collaboration.
A variety of e-commerce courses were made available to Pakistani students in an effort to impart impeccable Chinese business expertise.
At Dawood University of Engineering and Technology, the first course was made possible by Hunan Chemical, Vocational, and Technical College (DUET). 35 Pakistani students as a result gained knowledge of the e-commerce industry and became business owners on the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) e-commerce platform.
Along with learning how to enter the Chinese market with little investment, the students also learned the Chinese language.
The second round of courses will soon be introduced, according to DUET Vice-Chairman Dr. Faizullah Abbasi, with the assistance of Lanzhou University, to strengthen the BRI project between Pakistan and China.
He continued, “We are collaborating with the Lanzhou University and Gansu Province Education Department to launch the online BRI e-commerce classes.
The initiative, according to the vice-chancellor, will help Pakistan end its unemployment problem and give students new opportunities to work abroad.
He continued by saying that it would strengthen ties between the two countries’ educational institutions.
Abdullah Butt, the founder of EduCast, stated that 10,000 Pakistani students will receive e-commerce training in the country over the course of the following two years.
Three e-commerce courses totaling three months each are being offered, according to Sindh Technical Board Chairman Dr. Masroor Sheikh. To finish the course, you must spend 32 hours taking online classes and 32 hours going to in-person lectures.
He continued by saying that after matriculation, students from all over Pakistan can enroll in this programme. Along with learning the Chinese language and culture, the students will also learn about relevant Chinese laws and other business opportunities.
