Technical Education and Vocational Training Authority (TEVTA) has announced that it will train 15,000 Pakistani students in the Chinese language course during one year.
On the demand of youth, Chinese language classes are being started in the other cities of Punjab from November 2016 including Gujrat, Sheikhupura, Okara, Kasur, Sahiwal, Taxila, Sargodha, Layyah, Khanewal, Bahawalpur, Rahim Yar Khan and D.G.Khan. At present, these classes are successfully functioning at Lahore, Gujranwala, Sialkot, Faisalabad, Multan and Rawalpindi.
According to the TEVTA, Chinese investors urgently need Pakistani youth and the Pakistanis who are the expert in the Chinese language. While keeping in view this objective, TEVTA is spreading these classes in 18 cities of the province.
After successful functioning, classes of Chinese language course will also be organized to start in other major cities of the province in next phase because the youth of other cities are also approaching TEVTA in this regard. TEVTA claims that this course is helpful for the Pakistani youth who may intend to get the jobs in Chinese companies working in Pakistan.
