The Chinese government gifted Pak-China Technical and Vocational Institute (PCT & VI) to GPA in September 2021 to teach skills related to developing the Gwadar port and nearby cities.PCT & VI’s current new building needs spaces and facilities to meet all teaching, office and accommodation requirements. The department will cooperate with all government departments to handle relevant procedures under Pakistani laws and regulations.

The University of Gwadar will be responsible for implementing the institute on an international level. The staff will coordinate with the GPA in terms of daily management, learning activities, and overhead.
