According to Pakistan Bureau of Statistics (PBS) the country has an unemployment rate of approximately 8.5 pc, which means about 700,000 people are unemployed. Chinese language courses are expected to help create employment since there is a large presence of Chinese companies in Pakistan, particularly because companies are showing great interest in investing in the country in various projects under CPEC.
However, the biggest upside to learning the language is the option to secure higher education scholarships being offered in China. There are thousands of colleges and universities in China which offer scholarships and the medium of instruction is Chinese.
