Pak-China young could share ideas, thoughts to solve problems

BEIJING, October 24 (INP): Pak-China young could share ideas, thoughts to solve problems, says a report published by China Economic Net (CEN).

“I am very happy to receive the first prize. It also motivates me to attend such competitions, training sessions and research collaborations,” said Muhammad Anas Baig, a student from University of Engineering & Technology (UET) Lahore, Pakistan.

Baig just won the first prize at the International Invitational Competition of Intelligent Power Supply and Distribution Technology, which is under the 2021 Belt & Road and BRICS Skills Development and Technology Innovation Competition held online and offline in recent week.

This competition aims to enable students to master the vocational skills related to the operation and monitoring of power distribution grid and promote the cooperation between vocational colleges and enterprises.

Baig said, “I am very glad to be part of this online competition. It was a great experience of competing with the different universities from China, Thailand and Cambodia. I think, by hearing from different universities, the key common problems related to power system can be addressed in all collaborating countries. Students from diverse backgrounds could propose astonishing ideas to solve those.”

Liu Zhenying, president of executive committee of 2021 BRICS Skills Competition said that the competition could help train high-quality skilled talents for power and automation sectors.

Baig also told China Economic Net (CEN), “I really expect in future that there will be training in Zhengzhou Electric Power College (ZEPC), China since they got a very good setup for Power System Simulations and practical understanding about distribution system.”

Baig said, “We (UET, Lahore) also have a dedicated laboratory for power system simulations where the key purpose is to research and carve new ways to optimize the resources for electricity production and designing new control schemes for controlling inverters.”

ZEPC and UET Lahore has signed a cooperation memorandum in September, 2021, to cooperate in talents training for power sector and specialty construction.

“Many students from my university move to China for higher studies every year and they are doing wonders in their fields wherever they work. I think young talents from Pakistan and China could share their ideas and thoughts with each other and work out solutions to rising problems in the world either technological or economic,” he said.

Baig added that, “This is an era of technology. There must be cultural exchange programs between Pakistan and China. The young generation must learn from our ancestors and work hard to strengthen the Pakistan-China friendship because young people are the future leaders of every nation.”

The 2021 Skills Competition has attracted over 200 competitors of 49 teams from China, Thailand, Cambodia and Pakistan.

Zhengzhou Electric Power College (ZEPC), China and University of Engineering & Technology (UET) Lahore, Pakistan won the first prize at the International Invitational Competition.

University of Battambang, Cambodia took the second prize and Buengkan Technical College, Thailand was awarded the third prize.
