China Study Center


Become the leading research and teaching center on the Chinese history, system, culture and Chinese language in Quetta for capacity building of the people of Balochistan.


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.


The historical ties between Pakistan and China, rooted in their shared pursuit of independence, have evolved into a robust and mutually beneficial relationship. This enduring bond spans diverse domains, encompassing strategic alliances and economic collaborations. At the forefront of this partnership is the China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC), a pivotal bilateral initiative designed to foster regional cooperation and yield economic advantages for both nations.

In June 2021, recognizing the significance of deepening collaboration and understanding between the two nations, the China Study Center (CSC) was inaugurated at the Balochistan University of Information Technology, Engineering, and Management Sciences (BUITEMS). This initiative, generously funded by the Higher Education Commission (HEC), Islamabad, falls under PC-1 for "Academic Collaboration under the CPEC Consortium of Universities."

As a proud member of the CPEC Consortium of Universities, BUITEMS is committed to elevating cooperation in business, science, and technology between Pakistan and China. The CSC, with its mandate to promote academic, research, and cultural linkages, plays a pivotal role in strengthening ties between universities in both countries.

The Center embarks on multi-disciplinary research endeavors, with a specific emphasis on CPEC-related themes. Moreover, the CSC facilitates Chinese language courses and cultivates cultural understanding to bolster the capacity-building of the Pakistani populace at large, with a special focus on the province of Balochistan.

In essence, the China Study Center at BUITEMS stands as a testament to the enduring friendship between Pakistan and China, contributing significantly to academic enrichment, research advancement, and cultural appreciation. Through its diverse initiatives, the CSC is dedicated to fostering a more profound connection between the people of Pakistan and China, transcending geographical boundaries and enriching the lives of those it serves.
