The suc­cess of the Chi­naPak­istan Eco­nomic Cor­ri­dor (CPEC) de­pends on the com­mit­ment and col­lab­o­ra­tion of all stake­hold­ers, in­clud­ing po­lit­i­cal par­ties, pub­lic and pri­vate sec­tor or­gan­i­sa­tions, mil­i­tary, civil so­ci­ety and academia.

Gover­nor Mo­ham­mad Zubair said this while speak­ing at the Fifth Deans and Di­rec­tors An­nual Con­fer­ence, or­gan­ised by the Na­tional Busi­ness Ed­u­ca­tion Ac­cred­i­ta­tion Coun­cil (NBEAC) of Higher Ed­u­ca­tion Com­mis­sion (HEC). The con­fer­ence, which com­menced at Pearl Con­ti­nen­tal Ho­tel, was presided over by NBEAC Chair­per­son Dr Hasan So­haib Murad, while Zubair was the chief guest.

The con­fer­ence was ti­tled 'Cre­at­ing Im­pact with CPEC'. The gover­nor said that the con­fer­ence's theme was sig­nif­i­cant as it would gen­er­ate a dis­cus­sion re­gard­ing the chang­ing land­scape of Pak­istan's econ­omy and mul­ti­lat­eral re­la­tion­ships in the re­gion. Zubair added that the con­fer­ence would also serve as a medium con­nect­ing the CPEC with busi­ness ed­u­ca­tion in the coun- try, which would have a pos­i­tive long-term im­pact.

HEC Chair­per­son Dr Mukhtar Ahmed, who was one of the key­note speak­ers, said busi­ness ed­u­ca­tion could serve as a me­di­a­tor be­tween dif­fer­ent stake­hold­ers and fa­cil­i­tate for­ma­tion of eco­nomic poli­cies that were ex­e­cutable and which had the po­ten­tial to chart out so­cio-eco­nomic fu­ture of the coun­try.

Oth­ers who spoke in­cluded the chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer of the United States' Global Busi­ness School Net­works, Stephen Saaca, and the as­so­ciate dean of man­age­ment sciences at Iqra Uni­ver­sity, Dr Zaki Rashidi.

Four panel dis­cus­sions were held on the con­fer­ence's first day.
