After its official launch, all participants gained an in-depth understanding of the science communication project "Concrete Math Exhibition" through video and on-site tour. The core idea of the Exhibition is to train mathematical thinking, and the exhibits used in the exhibition are common to the touring exhibitions of the Beijing Mobile Science Centre, allowing the younger generation to learn the history of mathematics, appreciate the beauty of mathematics, experience the fun of mathematics, observe mathematical applications and train logical thinking. During the Book Donation, on behalf of the Network, Prof. Li Junkai, Director of International Office, Beijing Academy of Science and Technology, and Zhang Yongfeng, Deputy Director of the Beijing Science Centre presented books as gift to Mr. Muhammad Suleman Mahsud, Education Attaché, Embassy of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan Beijing, and Mr. Muhammad Junaid, Second Secretary, Embassy of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan Beijing.

With the progress of the CPEC, an increasing number of schools in Pakistan have set up Chinese language courses and Chinese research centers, and conducted exchanges with China. Meanwhile more young students are looking forward to learning about China's S&T education and development. During President Alvi's visit to China this year, the Joint Working Group on Science and Technology was established for the first time, taking China-Pakistan S&T cooperation to a new level, with science communication as an important element of bilateral S&T cooperation. The main objective of this CPEC Science Communication Network is to build a platform for information sharing, public welfare mutual assistance, academic exchanges and people-to-people exchanges in science communication between China and Pakistan. Bilateral joint efforts will create brand activities for China-Pakistan S&T cooperation and promote the high-quality development of CPEC.
