Opening of Chinese Corner at the Area Study Centre, Far East & Southeast Asia, University of Sindh is a step forward in right direction. Being world’s largest trading power and 2nd biggest economy, the founding of the Chinese Corner hold great potential to promote understanding of the China’s road to progress besides further strengthening the bonds between the two brotherly countries. China is poised to further enhance policy of communicating with other countries, expand the convergence of the shared interests and explore possible areas of win-win cooperation. Having priorities of promoting connectivity, building overland economic corridors and people-to-people exchanges, it is high time that our universities come forward and create opportunities for the researcher and people alike to learn about Chinese economy, society, culture and language. Considering Pakistan-China recent unprecedented cooperation for development and growth, it has become even more important that in addition to housing artifact of Chinese culture, society, language, books and displays, the Chinese Corner evolve as an access for linking Pakistani Universities to Chinese counterparts, exploring opportunities for joint ventures for societal development, students and faculty exchanges, and working together for promotion of education, research, entrepreneurship, Arts, Drama, literature, etc. The Chinese Corner can serve a hub of information for connecting people with people in every possible manifestation. I look forward for an innovative and unique progress of Chinese Corner.

I feel esteemed and write these lines with immense pleasure over the Establishment of Chinese Corner at the Area Study Centre, Far East & Southeast Asia, University of Sindh. Opening of the Chinese Corner in our University is great honor for all of us and very positive step to enlighten the students about the Chinese culture and language. It is great opportunity for the students of Sindh University in particular and youth of this land in general to learn and develop insight about the significance and role of society, culture and language of Chinese nation into their shining progress during recent years. Peaceful and smooth emergence of China has earned it great attention towards the vital role of the Chinese culture and society in the economic development of their country. I believe this will prove to be another milestone in bringing closer the people of two countries. I visualize the Chinese Corner will cater the needs of youth to get knowledge about the History, culture and language of the Chinese people which has guided them to make routes for phenomenal development in all aspects. The books, documents and other related material available at the Chinese Corner will enrich the students with knowledge about the Chinese society, culture, language and literature of Chinese people.
