According to CFPD, the expansion work was never an easy one amid Covid-19 pandemic, the shortage of engineering materials, technologies and construction personnel and security risks striking at the same time. However, engineers from CCCC-FHDI Engineering made feasible plans and took measures to guarantee the quality and processing of the expansion project, and the construction was completed ahead of the schedule.
Covering an area of 1,600 square meters, China-Pakistan Gwadar Faqeer Middle School is equipped with two teaching buildings and supporting facilities after the expansion. It will not only fulfill local kids’ educational aspirations but also strengthen the China-Pakistan friendship.
