The specific work includes the establishment of a pilot demonstration park for medicinal plants, wheat and other industrial crops in China and Pakistan, the joint application for scientific research projects, and the reception of 2-3 outstanding Pakistan doctoral students to study and work at NWAFU. These practices will greatly promote the mutual cooperation between the two universities. 

China and Pakistan have long-term fraternal friendships, as well as similar topography, climatic conditions and crop types.
