MISSION

To produce quality academic research in collaboration with Chinese universities focusing on CPEC, assimilate Chinese culture and be a base for teaching the Chinese language.

Overview

Pakistan and China began their relationship with the independence of both nations. This cordial relationship has flourished over the years in various fields ranging from strategic to economic ties. China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) is one of the major bilateral projects focusing on regional cooperation and economic benefits for both China and Pakistan. To strengthen the collaboration and understanding of the Chinese history, system, culture, language and economic/financial system, China Study Center (CSC) has been established in June 2021 at Balochistan University of Information Technology, Engineering and Management Sciences (BUITEMS). It is funded by the Higher Education Commission (HEC), Islamabad under PC-1 for “Academic Collaboration under the CPEC Consortium of Universities”. BUITEMS is a member of the CPEC Consortium of Universities which pledges to enhance cooperation in business, science, and technologies between Pakistan and China.

CSC has been mandated to promote academic, research and cultural linkages among the Pakistani and Chinese universities. The Center will deal with multi-disciplinary research themes with a particular focus on CPEC. Besides, the CSC will undertake the teaching of the Chinese language and cultural domain to facilitate the capacity building of the people of Pakistan in general and Balochistan in particular. This will help them interact with the people of China, especially connected with CPEC.

To pool resources, CSC is placed under the functional and operational control of Balochistan Think Tank Network (BTTN), a sister think tank located within the premises of BUITEMS and raised by the National Command Authority (NCA), Islamabad. The liabilities of logistic and financial support will remain with the BUITEMS.
