Bridging the skills gap through technology

Zhao Lijian, deputy chief of mission at the embassy of the People’s Republic of China in Islamabad, has said that Pakistani students would be given opportunities to acquire contemporary education in different fields in Chinese universities, writes Muhammad Farooq for The News International.

He was addressing the certificate-awarding ceremony after inaugurating the Huawei Authorized Information and Network Academy (HAINA) at the Ghulam Ishaq Khan Institute of Engineering Sciences and Technology in Pakistan last week. With the establishment of HAINA by Huawei, the Chinese company and the Ghulam Ishaq Khan Institute have agreed to work together to develop a cooperative working relationship and bridge the information and communications technology (ICT) knowledge and skills gap.

The collaboration will offer the students more opportunity to learn the latest industrial trends and technologies and become Huawei certified in support of their subsequent careers in the ICT industry.
