Mr. Rhong suggested that the governments of both the counties should develop a mechanism for Chinese and Pakistani students to learn Urdu and Chinese languages respectively.

“There is a lot of potential of trade in Pakistan and same is true for china; the reciprocal cooperation of Pakistan and China can lead both the countries towards progress and prosperity,” he maintained, adding that strong Sino-Pak relations had always been important, however, “in the present geo-political and geo-strategic dynamics, Pakistan and China need each other more than ever.”

Mr. Aman Ullah Khan, Chairman, Pakistan China Investment Promotion Council, while presiding over the session, urged the governments and businessmen of Pakistan and China to invest in the other country for their economic uplift.
