KARACHI— Sindh Gov­er­nor Dr. Ishratul Ebad has an­nounced that a help desk would be set up at the Gov­er­nor’s House with the man­date to fa­cil­i­tate uni­ver­si­ties of Sindh in es­tab­lish­ing aca­demic ties with their coun­ter­parts in China.

The Gov­er­nor was speak­ing with a del­e­ga­tion of four Chi­nese uni­ver­si­ties and 13 Vice Chan­cel­lors of Pak­istan’s uni­ver­si­ties at the Gov­er­nor’s House, said press re­lease on Tues­day.

The 10- mem­ber Chi­nese del­e­ga­tion dis­cussed prospects of aca­demic ties with Chi­nese uni­ver­si­ties and other ed­u­ca­tional in­sti­tu­tions. They in­tro­duced their pro­gramme for in­ter­na­tional in­sti­tu­tions to the Gov­er­nor.

The Gov­er­nor said his desk would take care of co­or­di­na­tion and col­lab­o­ra­tion of the uni­ver­si­ties of Sindh with Chi­nese au­thor­i­ties and aca­demic high­ups. He said the Gov­er­nor’s House had al­ready es­tab­lished a sim­i­lar desk for the China- Pak­istan Eco­nomic Cor­ri­dor ( CPEC) in which in­vestors and com­pa­nies were be­ing of­fered with fa­cil­i­ta­tion re­gard­ing in­vest­ment in the CPEC pro­jects.

The in­tel­lec­tu­als would be spear­head­ing APP the fu­ture in­ter­ac­tion be­tween the two coun­tries. Thus, the uni­ver­si­ties would be play­ing key role in groom­ing and pro­vid­ing those in­tel­lec­tu­als.

The Gov­er­nor praised Dr. Muham­mad Ali Shaikh, Vice Chan­cel­lor of Sindh Madres­satul Is­lam Univer­sity ( SMIU), for en­gag­ing Chi­nese uni­ver­si­ties and es­tab­lish­ing stu­dent ex­change pro­gramme. “It is good to know that our prov­ince Sindh has taken lead in es­tab­lish­ing con­tacts with the uni­ver­si­ties in Hainan prov­ince of China,” he added.

Dr Muham­mad Ali Shaikh said Sindh- Hainan Uni­ver­si­ties Fo­rum, which had or­ga­nized the on- go­ing con­fer­ence be­tween the uni­ver­si­ties of the two neigh­borly coun­tries, had found an un­par­al­leled aca­demic co­op­er­a­tion.

Mean­while, dur­ing the day’s pro­ceed­ings on the se­cond day of the three­day con­fer­ence, of­fi­cials of four lead­ing Chi­nese uni­ver­si­ties in­tro­duced their cam­puses and fac­ul­ties to a packed au­di­ence at a lo­cal ho­tel. Rep­re­sen­ta­tives of the Hainan Univer­sity, Hainan Nor­mal Univer­sity, Hainan Trop­i­cal Ocean Univer­sity and Sanya Univer­sity gave in­tro­duc­tion of their in­sti­tu­tions at se­ries of ses­sions dur­ing the con­fer­ence or­ga­nized by the SMIU.
