Chinese university delegation visits SMIU


KARACHI: A delegation of China’s Hainan Tropical Ocean University visited Sindh Madressatul Islam University Karachi, an official of the institution said on Thursday.

On the occasion, Sindh Madressatul Islam University Vice Chancellor Dr Muhammad said that Pakistan and China have an old relationship through their civilisations—the Indus Valley Civilisation and Yellow River Civilisation. The friendship between the two countries has strengthened by working on the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC).

The vice-chancellor was addressing an event held at the SMIU in the honour of a 5-member delegation of SMIU’s partner university – Hainan Tropical Ocean University (HTOU), China, at its Sir Shahnawaz Bhutto Auditorium.

He said that 21 students of SMIU had participated in a one-month long internship at HTOU in China recently. He further suggested that both the universities should provide education to their students for at least one semester.

Hainan Tropical Ocean University’s School of Marine Information Engineering Professor Liu Xuan, who was also the leader of the delegation, in her speech said that there is a long history of China and Pakistan friendship.

“Although there is a long distance between these two countries, our hearts are close to each other,” she added.

Ms Liu Xuan said that the SMIU and HTOU have established a good relationship, which will become stronger in future and provide a bridge between the two countries through their students and faculty.

On the occasion, a question-answer session was also held and souvenirs were exchanges. Prior to it, documentaries of SMIU and HTOU were screened at the auditorium.
