The Pakistan-China Institute is proud to present an innovative and unique, first-of-its kind production of a 13-part documentary, A Journey of Friendship. The credit for this documentary goes to its dynamic team leader, Ms Saadia Haseeb, Head of the Cultural Wing of the Pakistan-China Institute, and the Executive Producer, Mr Haseeb Saulat, who showed leadership through their creativity and commitment to professionalism. In this Year of Pakistan-China Friendship, this documentary about various facets of life in different parts of a Rising China, which is a source of strength for Pakistan, would serve as a bridge of better understanding between our two peoples. Our bilateral bond in the area of culture and people-to-people ties will be reinforced by this landmark initiative, which would, hopefully, be a harbinger of other such endeavours to promote what is a model, time-tested, good-neighbourly relationship. And it also serves as an excellent example of team work and home work!

A Journey of Friendship is a portrait of a country on its march towards progress and development. Spending two weeks in various cities of China, the production team of Pakistan-China Institute witnessed the Chinese miracle through their own eyes. This personal experience has enriched their work. Being the first production of its kind, the Journey of Friendship is a milestone in strengthening people to people contact between our two nations. This beautiful montage will enable the people of Pakistan to better understand the Chinese way of life, culture and traditions. I congratulate Ms. Saadia Haseeb, her enterprising sprit and the fine product she has prepared after her trip to China.

Reading about a country is one thing and watching someone experiencing it first hand is another. The emotive language of an article can never match the enthusiasm of a traveler who has a camera crew to follow. Journey of Friendship promises to be a program that would make a traveler of all those viewers who have a little tourist in their heart, specially those who have dreamt of traveling to China one day.
