The Center’s research areas encompass the political, economic, diplomatic, security situations in post-Cold War South Asia in general and Pakistan in particular, the relationship between China and South Asian countries, with focus on Sino-Pakistan relations and the China-Pakistan economic corridor, and the U.S. policy towards South Asia. Since its establishment, the Centre has been committed to building a think tank for in-depth study of Pakistan and China-Pakistan relations, a platform for various exchanges and cooperation between China and Pakistan, a base for cultivation of relevant professionals, and a window for fully understanding Pakistan and China- Pakistan friendship.
