Chaudhry Faisal Mushtaq TI CEO Roots Millennium Schools, Pakistan and Founder Millennium Chinese Language Department first coined the slogan of Pakistan-China together making up 21% of the world’s population. He believed the youth on both sides of the border is the untapped resource that needs to be utilized in the 21st century; and this driving force will be responsible for growth and development of Pakistan and China. An empowered youth together can change the picture of this region in his opinion and his slogan of club 21:21which means 21 % of the world population together in the 21st century has now become a household name in the Pak China context. Education is the common factor that can play a key role in unifying the youth of the two nations.
