RAWALPINDI: The garrison city on Friday got a third varsity for women after Government Viqarun Nisa Postgraduate College was upgraded to a university.

Punjab Chief Minister Sardar Usman Buzdar announced the decision while speaking at a ceremony held at Viqarun Nisa college on Friday.

“Ample higher education opportunities are available for female students in Rawalpindi as the division has 60 girls colleges alone,” the chief minister said, adding that women education was a top priority of the government.

Mr Buzdar said health budget had been raised by 124 per cent while an increase of 286pc and 29pc was made in higher education and school education budgets, respectively.
Meanwhile, he said 21 universities had been approved for Punjab, out of which six have already been established and work on nine others was underway.

“Four universities are already present in Rawalpindi district while steps are being taken to establish a university in Attock as well,” he added.

The chief minister said outstanding students in need of financial help had been given 10,574 Rahmatul-Lil-Alameen scholarships worth Rs273.8 million while 677 Punjab Educational Endowment Fund (PEEF) scholarships would also be provided, adding that 29,142 Rahmatul-Lil-Alameen scholarships worth Rs1 billion would be awarded this year.

Mr Buzdar said ‘Seerat Chairs’ had been set up in IUB, Ghazi University D.G. Khan, Okara University, GCU Faisalabad, University of Chakwal and Bahauddin Zakariya University to assist with research.

“An effort has been made to ensure the participation of people from all walks of life in Ashra Shan-i-Rahmatul-Lil-Alameen,” he added.

Speaking on the occasion, Interior Minister Sheikh Rashid Ahmad said it was a big day as he had managed to establish a third women university in Rawalpindi. He said in the British period, ‘Dhokes’ were set up to get labour but we provided higher education facilities to all people in Rawalpindi’s ‘Dhokes’.

He said 5,000 girls were getting education in Dhoke Hassu alone, adding that he had managed to set up a girls college in the cantonment areas for the first time. He said he had established 79 colleges in Rawalpindi after nuclear scientist Dr Abdul Qadeer Khan asked him to work for education.

China-Pakistan Higher Education Research Institute launched

October 16, 2021


Ever since the creation of CPEC Consortium of Universities, four annual conferences have been held. The consortium started off with 19 universities in 2019 (10 Pakistani and 9 Chinese), but now the membership stands at 83 (61 Pakistani and 22 Chinese). During the recent conference, the China-Pakistan Higher Education Research Institute was also established which will facilitate high-end higher education research in both countries, and enhance mutual cooperation in areas of scientific, economic, agricultural, educational, and socioeconomic development.

BEIJING, Oct 15 (APP): The 4th Exchange Mechanism Conference of China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) Consortium of Universities was held on Friday.
The Conference was held simultaneously through online and on-site modes at Peking University, Beijing and National University of Sciences and Technology, Islamabad. Shafqat Mahmood, Minister for Federal Education and Profession Training; Du Yubo, President, China Association of Higher Education; Prof Qiu Shuiping, Secretary of the CPC Committee and Chair of the University Council, Peking University; Dr Shaista Sohail, Executive Director, Higher Education Commission of Pakistan; Nong Rong, Ambassador of China Pakistan; and Moin ul Haque, Ambassador of Pakistan to China, attended the Conference along with other dignitaries.
The CPEC Consortium of Universities was established in 2017 with 19 (10 Pakistani and 9 Chinese) universities. Currently, the membership of the Consortium stands at 83 (61 Pakistani and 22 Chinese) universities.

The Consortium’s rapid progress marks a renewed beginning of educational cooperation leading to industrial, business, infrastructural, cultural and socioeconomic cooperation between the two brotherly countries of China and Pakistan.


The successful completion of the 4th Exchange Mechanism Conference is especially significant not only because it was held under the challenging times of the global COVID-19 pandemic, but also because it was held in a year when both countries are celebrating the 70th Anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic ties.


During the Conference, the China-Pakistan Higher Education Research Institute was also established. The Institute will further facilitate high-end higher education research in both countries focusing on mutual priority areas of scientific, economic, agricultural, educational and socioeconomic development under the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor.

The Annual Development Reports of 2019-20 were also presented on the occasion by the respective Chinese and Pakistani Secretariats of the Consortium. Goals and targets for the next were also outlined.

During the Conference, parallel thematic sessions were also held covering various areas of mutual cooperation, including Promotion of Collaborative Research; Curriculum Designing; Instructional Content and Assessment Methodologies; Teaching Reform and Talents Training; and CPEC-related Industrial, Agricultural, Energy and Educational Cooperation.
