Up-gradation of textile sector to
help Pakistan maintain its inherent edge
Ambassador of People’s Republic of China to Islamabad, Yao
Jing said the up-gradation of textile sector with Chinese
collaboration would help Pakistan maintain its inherent edge in
this specific field through technology transfer.
This was stated by the ambassador while talking to the
faculty and students of National Textile University (NTU)
Faisalabad during his visit here.
He assured that China would access the technological needs of
Pakistan and take appropriate steps for manufacturing of hi-tech
Textile Machinery within this country.
He said Pakistan had expertise as its exporters were already
manufacturing and exporting leading international brands and
China could help them to produce their own indigenous brands so
that they could earn sizable profit from their quality products.
He also offered to arrange specialized training courses for
the students of NTU and said it would pave the way for
technology transfer from China to Pakistan.
Similarly, exchange of delegations would also be encouraged
to forge working relationship between the faculty and students
of the two countries, he added.
Rector NTU Prof Dr Tanveer Hussain welcomed the Chinese
Ambassador and briefed him about the university.
