China-Pakistan Management Initiative (CPMI)
China–Pakistan Economic Corridor is part of One Belt, One Road project and has created a tremendous amount of interest for Chinese firms wishing to invest in Pakistan and Pakistani firms desiring increased relations in China. As the leading business school in Pakistan, we are keen on developing a center for collaborative research, exploring business avenues and exchange of ideas between China and Pakistan. We are calling it ‘China Pakistan Management Initiative (CPMI)’.
The commencement of activities under CPEC has resulted in business interest from both China and Pakistan. However, cultural and legal issues are a major hindrance in the smooth operations of cross-border business. Suleman Dawood School of Business is actively interested in developing and disseminating knowledge relating to economic, management, social and cultural issues surrounding CPEC. We would also like to help Chinese businesses become familiar with business, cultural and legal environment in Pakistan and also help Pakistani businesses gain knowledge of Chinese culture, business norms and legal frameworks. Our Executive Education Center is capable of carrying out some of the intended objectives of this Initiative through executive education and training.
