About Pakistan-China Institute (PCI)
Launched on 1st October 2009, under the Chairmanship of Senator Mushahid Hussain, Pakistan-China Institute (PCI) is the first of its kind non-governmental, non-partisan and non-political think-tank. PCI endeavors to be the principal non-governmental platform to promote people to people ties between Pakistan and China in all areas particularly defense and diplomacy, education and energy, economy and environment, and with a particular focus on youth and women.
On its course to materializing this vision, PCI aspires to lead rigorous discussions and in depth analysis by undertaking multi-faceted initiatives including conferences, lectures, exchange of visits, journals, e-magazines and documentaries.
PCI is a frontline advocate for the pivotal bilateral relationship between China and Pakistan and within a short span, it has emerged as a credible institution in both countries, and a premiere entity, which different sections of both societies turn to for advice, assistance and information.
Pakistan-China Institute aims to take up a leading role in generating discussions and analysis on multiple aspects of the diplomatic relations between China and Pakistan, as well as the entire region. In the Asian Century, the need for a platform that fosters people-to-people contact in the region is crucial. An integral part of PCI’s mission is to serve as a resource to all those who seek a better understanding of the changing dynamics of regional relations, particularly in relation to Pakistan and China.
Pakistan China Institute, an independent, non-partisan research think thank and publisher, is dedicated to functioning as a resource for government officials, educators, students, civic leaders and all interested citizens to help them better understand the geostrategic dynamics of Asia.
