The initiative was launched under the auspices of HEC and China Association of Higher Education (CAHE). However, the scope of the Consortium has been enhanced to cover all major domains of higher education and currently as many as 56 universities from two countries are now a part of the Consortium. <br></p><p>Addressing the ceremony, Mr. Bukhtiar hoped that the collaboration under the banner of CPEC Consortium of Universities would broaden the scope of bilateral relations between Pakistan and China.

He encouraged the universities to conduct research on important national issues and bring their findings to the Strategic Policy Planning Cell. "Academics play an important role in informing policy makers in what works and what doesn't. I encourage institutions of higher learning to come up with solutions to our national problems so that same may be presented to policy makers," he said.<br></p><p>Earlier, in his welcome address, Lt.
