Maintaining close relations with China is an integral part of Pakistan's foreign policy. Pakistan and China have placed considerable importance on the maintenance of an extremely close and supportive relationship. Chinese cooperation with Pakistan has reached economic high points, with substantial Chinese investment in Pakistani infrastructural expansion including the Pakistani deep-water port at Gwadar. The biggest development off late to open the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) has changed the situation completely as China has carved an enormous plan for economic growth and development in Pakistan. The Pak China Study & Research Center (PCSRC) has been envisaged to be the central point for multidisciplinary academic, research, entrepreneurial, business and collaborative activities in Pakistan with respective Chinese counterparts. PCSRC at Bahria University (BU) aims to address key challenges in a variety of areas spread over a swath of scientific, technological, business, logistic and cultural domains.
