China will help Pakistan in installing high-powered medium and shortwave and FM radio transmitters. This was agreed at a meeting held between Information Minister Sheikh Rashid Ahmed and the President of China Radio International (CRI) Dongmei Wang. The Minister is currently on a visit to China at the head of 11-member media delegation. During the talks, the two sides agreed to expand existing cooperation between CRI and Radio Pakistan.
Sheikh Rashid Ahmed said he appreciated CRI’s Urdu service, and said it was playing the role of a bridge to bring the people of the two countries closer to each other. He noted that CRI had expanded the Urdu service from one hour to three hours daily for Pakistani listeners.
