Beijing (English) - - INFO -

From April 17 to 18, 2017, Pak­istan's Khy­ber Pakhtunkhwa Prov­ince and the Em­bassy of Pak­istan in China held an eco­nomic and trade pro­mo­tion in Bei­jing, pre­sent­ing the prov­ince's 86 projects of 13 fields. Present at the event were a del­e­ga­tion of Khy­ber Pakhtunkhwa's gov­ern­men­tal bod­ies and pri­vate en­ter­prises led by Chief Min­is­ter of Khy­ber Pakhtunkhwa Prov­ince Pervez Khat­tak, and about 400 rep­re­sen­ta­tives of Chi­nese en­ter­prises. At the event, mem­o­ran­dums on un­der­stand­ing of projects in 11 fields were signed.

Pervez Khat­tak re­marked that the event was “a dis­cov­ery and in­dus­tri­al­i­sa­tion trip of Khy­ber Pakhtunkhwa.” At the event, he stressed Pak­istan would pro­vide a range of pref­er­en­tial poli­cies for in­vestors, and in­tro­duced Pak­istan's ef­forts to im­prove its in­ter­nal se­cu­rity.

At the opening cer­e­mony of the event, Pak­istan Am­bas­sador to China Ma­sood Khalid stressed the chief min­is­ter's visit and the event would help show­case the po­ten­tial of the prov­ince's eco­nomic de­vel­op­ment, in­di­cat­ing the China-pak­istan Eco­nomic Cor­ri­dor is highly re­garded in all of Pak­istan's prov­inces and would fur­ther con­sol­i­date a long-term friendly tie be­tween the two coun­tries. The Chi­naPak­istan Eco­nomic Cor­ri­dor re­flected for­ward­think­ing of the two coun­tries' lead­ers and will ben­e­fit the two coun­tries' peace and pros­per­ity and the whole re­gion's eco­nomic de­vel­op­ment.

As guest of hon­our of the event, the China-pak­istan Friend­ship As­so­ci­a­tion Pres­i­dent Sha Zukang thought Chi­naPak­istan re­la­tions should serve as a model for other coun­tries. Ac­cord­ing to him, the Belt and Road Ini­tia­tive is a global con­cept to ben­e­fit global eco­nomic de­vel­op­ment.
