Pakistan-China Institute has developed this CPEC Portal as its flagship project, in collaboration with China Radio International, to disseminate information about, and enable stakeholder connectivity with, the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor.
Utilising its credibility in China and Pakistan, and extensively mobilizing its resources in the two countries, Pakistan-China Institute has devised a comprehensive CPEC information collection and verification mechanism. The CPEC Portal is an avenue that enables this mechanism to involve the stakeholders of China-Pakistan Economic Corridor, enhance their knowledge about the bilateral collaboration, and enrich their interaction for mutual gains.
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 tank 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.
China Radio International (CRI) was founded on December 3, 1941. CRI aims to introduce China to the rest of the world, introduce the world to China, report global affairs to the world, and promote understanding and friendship between the Chinese and peoples from other countries. CRI is China's only state-level radio and television media organization specializing in international communications. CRI is headquartered in Beijing, China. CRI's current director-general is Mr. Wang Gengnian.
CRI has undergone a great transformation from a traditional single-platform media organization using shortwave broadcasts to an international multimedia entity that incorporates all mass communication means. At present, CRI uses 61 languages in its overseas reporting work and broadcasts a daily total of 2,700-plus programming hours. CRI has nearly 70 overseas, dedicated affiliate radio stations and 18 global internet radio services, and receives 3 million pieces of audience feedback every year. CRI has six overseas main regional bureaus and 32 overseas correspondent bureaus. It is a communication platform that incorporates the greatest number of communication means in China and includes the greatest number of language services among mainstream global media organizations.
China International Broadcasting Network, or CIBN, was formally established on January 18, 2011. CIBN relies on the increasingly developing internet and mobile communication technology to interact with a global audience through multilingual, multi-type, multi-terminal forms of communication, and covers a wide range of online audio-visual programs, mobile radio and TV, internet TV, IPTV, CMMB and other new media forms. The establishment of CIBN marks the all-round entry into the new media field by CRI that has a history of nearly 70 years. CRI has thus taken a decisive step towards establishing a modern, comprehensive and innovative international media group.
