    ramp up

    Dear teachers,

    Would you tell me whether I am right with my interpretation of the expression in bold in the following sentence?

    Pakistan and China have in recent years ramped up their traditional close ties.

    ramp up = to increase a company's operations in anticipation of increased demand; bolster or strengthen

    Thank you for your efforts.

    Regards,

    V
