ISLAMABAD, Sep 16 (APP): Pakistan and China would establish six modern technical and vocational training institutes along the route of China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC).

These institutes would be established at Gilgit, Mansehra, Abbottabad, Dera Ismael Khan, Quetta and Gwadar, official sources in the National Commission for Vocational Training said here on Friday.

The CPEC would not only open the new vista of progress and development in Pakistan but also create a number of employment opportunities for Pakistani youth.

The skilled workers would play a pivotal role in poverty alleviation and socio-economic uplift, the sources added.
