Pakistan to Send 1,000 Students to China for Training, Announces PM Shehbaz

Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif has unveiled a plan to send 1,000 Pakistani students to a top Chinese agricultural institute for advanced training. This initiative aims to modernize agricultural techniques in Pakistan, ultimately increasing crop yields and boosting exports.

During his recent visit to Xi’an, a key agricultural and industrial city in China, Sharif toured the Yangling Agricultural Demonstration Base. This facility is known for its cutting-edge agricultural practices and research. During his tour, Sharif extended an invitation to the Northwest Agriculture and Forestry University to establish a campus in Pakistan. This move is intended to foster closer educational ties and facilitate knowledge transfer between the two countries.

In addition to his tour, Prime Minister Sharif engaged in several high-profile meetings with Chinese leaders and investors. These discussions led to the signing of 23 Memorandums of Understanding (MoUs). These agreements aim to enhance cooperation in a variety of sectors, including agriculture, industry, technology, and education.

The Prime Minister’s visit highlights Pakistan’s strong commitment to innovation and international collaboration. By learning from China’s advanced agricultural techniques, Pakistan hopes to improve its own agricultural productivity and economic output. This partnership is expected to bring significant benefits to Pakistan’s agriculture sector, helping to ensure food security and increase the country’s competitiveness in global markets.
