Pakistan and China have collaborated to develop an employment exchange to facilitate talented Pakistani individuals in getting their hands on the CPEC-related jobs.
The instituted exchange has been developed through collaboration between one of Pakistan’s famous job portals, Rozee.pk and the Pakistan China Joint Chamber of Commerce & Industry (PCJCCI). The platform that will link the Chinese employers with Pakistani individuals has been made operational in the Chinese, Urdu and English languages so that all the participants are able to take equal parts in the program. The exchange will officially be launched at a dedicated ceremony due to held today.
As the China-Pakistani Economic Corridor is a vast scale project consisting of development of road infrastructure and different industrial hubs etc., it is expected to bring a vast array of employment opportunities to the Pakistani individuals as well. The project has already provided employment to more than 30,000 Pakistani individuals and the number will only grow. The Port Qasim Coal-fired Power Project alone has provided job opportunities to 5,000 of Pakistani individuals.
In order to take full advantage of the other jobs that would be created as part of the project and hence unlock over 7 million highly skilled Pakistani professionals across all sectors of industry, this dedicated job portal was launched by Rozee.pk in collaboration with PCJCCI.
SM Naveed, President Pak-China Joint Chamber of Commerce & Industry, while launching the project mentioned, “This project will add considerable value to Chinese businesses establishing operations in Pakistan by quickly supplying them with highly skilled Pakistani talent.”
Monis Rahman, Chairman & CEO of Rozee.pk added, “Rozee.pk’s mission is to connecting talent with opportunity. CPEC related projects are anticipated to have a Big Bang effect on the Pakistani economy. This employment exchange will leverage Pakistan’s most valuable asset, its people, to help our Chinese partners achieve shared goals”.
The China Pakistan Economic Corridor is a mega-scale economic project that was launched between Pakistan and China two years ago. The corridor which will cross through Pakistan will work on developing the Pakistani infrastructure. With an initial investment of $46 billion that came into Pakistan as part of the project, CPEC is now being valued at a whopping 62 billion dollars.
