FAISALABAD: The Centre for Integrated Research, Technology and Complete Solutions will be established soon at the University of Agriculture, Faisalabad under Higher Education Commission’s China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) programme.

This was said by UAF Vice-Chancellor Prof Dr Iqrar Ahmad Khan during a meeting with Higher Education Commission Adviser on CPEC Muhammad Asghar at the Syndicate Room on Friday.

Asghar said the country will witness an economic turnaround that would help ensure sustainable development due to CPEC. Terming CPEC a hallmark step that would help change the lives of the people, he asked people to learn Chinese language.

He said the country lacks trained manpower in some areas of the engineering, including mining engineering, railway engineering,   logistics etc for which tangible steps were needed.

He urged the agricultural experts to identify weak areas in the agriculture so that scholars could be sent for higher studies abroad to get benefit from other nations’ experiences.
