Pakistan, China to jointly establish Earth Sciences research institute

  • Center to facilitate Chinese and Pakistani businesses and institutions looking to invest in each other's innovations
Published September 10, 2023

China and Pakistan will establish a joint research center in October to promote the study of Earth sciences and sci-tech exchanges, an official in charge of the center’s preparatory work said during the 2023 China International Fair for Trade in Services, APP reported.

According to Hong Tianhua, "China-Pakistan Joint Research Center on Earth Sciences will be established in Islamabad, the capital of Pakistan, in October as a high-level platform for scientific and technological innovation between the two countries to promote sci-tech cooperation and talent cultivation."

"The center is being initiated by the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) and the Higher Education Commission of Pakistan and is supported by the Institute of Mountain Hazards and Environment under the CAS and Quaid-i-Azam University in Pakistan," according to Xinhua.

Its establishment also incorporates universities in Pakistan, including the University of Peshawar, CAS-affiliated institutes, and other Chinese research organizations.

The center will conduct a collaborative study in four areas: resources, environment, and green development; geological formations and tectonic activity; climate change and environmental effects.

The center will also act as a facilitator for Chinese and Pakistani businesses and institutions looking to invest in each other's innovations.

In order to assist the development of the Belt and Road Initiative and the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor, Hong stated, "We hope to build a high-level platform for sci-tech cooperation between the two countries, and gradually extend it to neighboring countries."

Be aware of the efforts of anti-China block to sabotage every initiative that dilutes their influence over Pakistan. The big business runs the world.

@TimetoMoVVeOn, Pakistan was facing chronic power shortages and industries were leaving the country. No one wanted to invest in Pakistan. China did and ended the power shortages. It is also investing in building dams and roads which will pay off in the future. It is for the country to take advantage of these investments and go forward.

@Az_Iz, China didn’t invest out of kindness. The invested by taking advantage of us. We guarantee their electric plants a certain profit, regardless if we need/buy their electricity. This is why even when we use less electricity, the bill doesn’t go down. So dont confuse their investment like it’s an act of charity, because they took advantage of us.

China went to the moon, india just did. We instead will focus on proving things from Hadith like 7 ajwa dates per day will protect us from magic, and that newborns cry because they are pinched by shaytan (as narrated in Sahih Bukhari).

@Love Your Country , do you realise that China is a master, not an ally? We are in a new Warsaw Pact, but subservient to China, not USSR. Every foreign policy decision Pakistan makes must go through Beijing. This is why Pakistan was excited to be given an invitation to Bidens democracy summit, but was unable to attend.
