China to provide free AI training to 200,000 Pakistani youth

In a landmark move, China has pledged to offer free artificial intelligence (AI) training to 200,000 young Pakistanis. This initiative is part of a series of agreements signed between Chinese technology companies and Pakistan, aimed at enhancing cooperation in various technological fields.

The agreements also encompass the establishment of safe cities in Pakistan, advancements in e-governance, cloud services, and the digitization of the economy.

During a visit to Huawei’s headquarters in Shenzhen, China, Prime Minister Shahbaz Sharif, accompanied by members of his cabinet, was greeted with traditional music and saw the facility adorned with vibrant Pakistani truck art. This cultural exchange underscored the deepening ties between the two nations.

Prime Minister Sharif met with the Chairman of Huawei and extended an invitation for him to visit Pakistan and explore investment opportunities. Speaking at the Pakistan-China Business Forum, Sharif emphasized the importance of looking forward, stating, “If you stay in the past, you will not be able to achieve anything.”

The Prime Minister also had discussions with the founder and chairman of Transsion Holdings, a Chinese company, who expressed a commitment to expanding their investment in Pakistan’s mobile phone sector. This assurance further strengthens the economic and technological partnership between China and Pakistan.
