Uplifting Baluchi youth, in particular, has been made possible through the provision of 4-year BS programs/equivalent MA/MSc degrees at top Punjabi universities, as well as international scholarship opportunities for youth with 14-year or equivalent educational qualifications to study Chinese at top native Chinese language learning institutes or universities in the Chinese native environment. Having a command of the Chinese language, which is the primary medium of communication in the CPEC and its neighbouring projects, will aid them in finding employment.
