Accompanied by Dr. Ata ur Rahman, Counsellor of Scientific and Technical Affairs at the Embassy of Pakistan (China), the Rector met with Vice President Li Chaoxian (BTBU), Head of the Pakistan Study Centre for S and T and Economy (BTBU) and researchers from the university to follow-up on a previous visit held last year.

GIK has formed collaborations with a number of Chinese institutions in recent years. These include: Liaoning University, Nanjing Tech University, Xi’an Jiaotong University, Nanjing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics and Shenyang Aerospace University. Possible collaboration with BTBU, one of China’s oldest and top universities, will further strengthen the ties GIK has with Chinese institutions.
