• About Conference

    The Centre of Excellence China Studies, GC University, Lahore, is organizing a Two-Day International Conference on China-Pakistan Economic Corridor to be held on December 09–10, 2015.

    In the wake of China’s elevated position in the global politics, Pakistan’s relations with its other neighboring countries, security needs of both the countries in existing security mosaic of Asia, and potential economic and strategic gains that mutual partnership can offer initiation of CPEC is bound to have long term implications for not only Pakistan and China but for regional and extra-regional actors. It is, therefore, of great necessity and significance for scholars to research and suggest avenues of pragmatic cooperation to further enrich the already truehearted relationship and to explore the possibility of a strategic bloc with likeminded countries to counter the existing security threats to world peace. The conference, therefore, seeks to explore economic, political, strategic, and social dimensions of CPEC covering a wide range of subjects of interest and concern to the two countries.
