On the occasion, Chargé d’Affaires Zhao said “language is a bridge among different cultures, a bridge to bring our hearts closer to each other. If you could master the Chinese language, you will get a better understanding of the essence of the Chinese culture and the way of thinking, thus you can better communicate and work with Chinese friends.”

“Chinese government is encouraging more Pakistani students to study in China and last year, 18,000 Pakistani students were studying in China, among them 5,081 students who are on Chinese government scholarships”, Zhao Lijian added.
