LAHORE: Pakistan-China Joint Chamber of Commerce and Industry (PCJCCI) President Shah Faisal Afridi has urged the government of Pakistan to redesign its technical training programmes in line with the Chinese labour-intensive industries to be relocated from China to Pakistan. Exchanging views at a meeting with Shandong Shifeng Group Co General Manager Liu Chengqiang, Afridi said Pakistan could make its unemployed manpower effective in the current scenario by providing technical training in China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC)-related work ambits. He noted that China was witnessing an economic renewal at a massive scale by following the European model of relocating part of its manufacturing sector to the economically viable places bearing skilled labour at low wages. Afridi was confident that Pakistan could attract Chinese manufacturing sector by developing trained workforce for industries.
