He works with his teammates to take care of around 180 employees, like their living, their office, their food, their entry, their exit…”
Together with his coworkers, Warraich devotes himself to the construction of Thar Coal Block-1 Power Plant, a combined coalmine and coal-powered energy generation project under China–Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) located in Islamkot, Tharparkar District, Sindh, Pakistan.
The project cannot be built without excellent management and hardworking front-line Chinese and Pakistani staff, but it also needs bridges like Warraich to narrow the gap. Joined the company in December 2020, Warraich mainly cares about the administration, public relations and social responsibility work of the site.
His life is filled with cultural differences, language differences and arrangement differences, but he loves to take on such challenges.
According to the multinational corporation Shanghai Electric, it hires both Pakistani and Chinese workers. There are about 5,000 employees working at the site of Thar Coal Block-1 Power Plant, among which a large amount are Muslims. “I work on both sides – for the Chinese site and the Pakistani side,” Warraich tries his best to bridge different cultures.
On top of that, Warraich is also a bridge between the company and locals living near the project site.
“Warraich once investigated the living conditions and needs of villagers around the site, and coordinated the company to carry out various CSR donations for them,” recalled Jiang Zedong, Maintenance Manager of Production Preparation Department.
