This project will help people who live in the SEZs (CPEC).
Aiou’s vice chancellor says that training will start in Rashakai and the Gilgit-Baltistan (G-B) Industrial Zones first, and then it will be expanded to all other SEZs. He also said that the university has made a special course for people in the area to learn.
