KARACHI—Sindh Madres­satul Is­lam Univer­sity (SMIU) has or­gan­ised a three­day Sindh-Hainan Uni­ver­si­ties Fo­rum aimed at pro­mot­ing col­lab­o­ra­tion be­tween the uni­ver­si­ties of Sindh and Hainan prov­ince of China, which will in­clude ex­change of stu­dents in dif­fer­ent fac­ul­ties.

This important fo­rum will be­gin on May 2 here at a lo­cal ho­tel to help pro­mote Pak-China part­ner­ship in ed­u­ca­tion, said SMIU’s Vice Chan­cel­lor dur­ing a press con­fer­ence here on Wed­nes­day.

Vice Chan­cel­lors and Pro­fes­sors of twenty Pak­istani uni­ver­si­ties along with rep­re­sen­ta­tives of the uni­ver­si­ties from China’s Hainan prov­ince would par­tic­i­pate. Be­sides, gov­ern­ment func­tionar­ies would be vis­it­ing the fo­rum, he said.

He said Hainan uni­ver­si­ties had al­ready of­fered to a good num­ber of SMIU’s stu­dents one se­mes­ter couch­ing free of cost. SIMU’s was also ready to re­cip­ro­cate. He said on the di­rec­tives of Sindh Gover­nor Dr.Ishratul Ebad Khan and Sindh Chief Min­is­ter Syed Qaim Ali Shah, this fo­rum was be­ing hosted by SMIU to de­velop sim­i­lar un­der­stand­ing and col­lab­o­ra­tion be­tween other uni­ver­si­ties of Sindh and Hainan uni­ver­si­ties.

He said that he had vis­ited four uni­ver­si­tiesone of th­ese in pri­vate sec­tor of Hainan prov­ince, which is near Hong Kong. Th­ese uni­ver­si­ties of­fered free ed­u­ca­tion to cer­tain num­ber of SMIU’s stu­dents. He said Chi­nese uni­ver­si­ties had a big ca­pac­ity and join­ing of a group of Pak­istani stu­dents in a univer­sity there would add no bur­den to it.

This fo­rum would also in­clude more than a dozen tech­ni­cal ses­sions, he said. He fur­ther said the scope of this fo­rum would be to ex­tend co­op­er­a­tion among uni­ver­si­ties of the two prov­inces aimed at ex­change of fac­ulty mem­bers, research per­son­nel, and grad­u­ate and un­der-grad­u­ate stu­dents for study and research.

Be­sides, it would pro­mote li­ai­son for ac­cess to research jour­nals, joint ed­u­ca­tional, train­ing and research ac­tiv­i­ties, par­tic­i­pa­tion in sem­i­nars and aca­demic meet­ings, ex­change of ad­min­is­tra­tive man­agers.—APP
