China is helping two state-run institutions offer online courses to help people sell products and services in the Chinese market.
Dawood Engineering University and Sindh Technical Board jointly launched several courses to develop Chinese entrepreneurship among the youth with the collaboration of China. Under the programme, Chinese teachers and business professionals are providing online classes on Chinese business entrepreneurship and expanding Pakistani product marketing. The business courses will also teach the youth about global business trends worldwide.
Sindh Technical Board Chairman Dr Masroor Shaikh told The Express Tribune that Technical Board and Dawood Engineering University are jointly conducting these courses with the assistance of Hunan Chemical and Vocational Technical College, China.
He said that these courses were designed with the new academic standards in mind.
Besides encouraging the young generation to establish a business, the course will teach them how to operate a low-cost online business, he said. Sheikh further said that the Chinese companies are increasing the daily hiring well informed and technology-trained English-speaking workforce.
BRI acts as the foundation for online sales and cross-border e-commerce activities in 152 other countries to sell Chinese products and services.
He said that the two educational institutions had taken these measures to alleviate unemployment in youth, provide the youth with overseas employment opportunities, and enhance relations between Pakistan and China educational institutions.
The courses will begin on July 19 at Dawood University of Engineering and Technology. He further said that a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was recently signed on the Model Sino-Pak Dual Diploma Vocational and Technical Joint Educational Programme.
