Pak­istan's China en­voy looks for­ward to China's eco­nomic blue­prints

The Pak Banker - - NATIONAL - Staff Reporter

Am­bass­sador of Pak­istan in China Ma­sood Khalid has said that he as look­ing for­ward to see the out­comes of the China's out­go­ing `Two ses­sions' with ref­er­ence to the coun­try's eco­nomic blue­prints.

The Chi­nese Peo­ple's Political Con­sul­ta­tive Con­fer­ence, col­lo­qui­ally known as `Two ses­sions' in China is a politi­cial con­sul­ta­tive body of China com­pris­ing del­e­gates from a range of political par­ties and or­ganzi­a­tions and in­de­pen­dent mem­bers. In an in­ter­view with Global Times pub­lished on Sun­day, the am­bas­sador said that China was the world's se­cond largest econ­omy, ac­count­ing for a quar­ter of the world eco­nomic out­put. The world econ­omy, in gen­eral, has seen a melt­down in re­cent years. "In such a sce­nario, the im­print of Chi­nese econ­omy on the world eco­nomic map has a far­reach­ing im­pact. It's only nat­u­ral for the two ses­sions to delve in de­tail on China's eco­nomic out­look in the com­ing years," he said. He be­lieved that China was fully aware of the chal­lenges and op­por­tu­ni­ties ahead. The care­fully planned 13th Five-Year-Plan was a step-wise strat­egy to mit­i­gate chal­lenges of mass man­u­fac­tur­ing and over­ca­pac­ity, and build on the pol­icy of high-tech and eco-friendly growth, Khalid added.

He said a co­or­di­nated de­vel­op­ment model as en­vis­aged in the plan would lead to over­all de­vel­op­ment and pros­per­ity across all re­gions of China.

From the two ses­sions, Khalid said he sees the Chi­nese lead­er­ship's

ef­forts to­wards trans­parency and open­ing-up. "The two ses­sions man­i­fest China's re­al­is­tic eco­nomic and so­cial wel­fare as­sess­ment. The lead­er­ship is pay­ing at­ten­tion to for­eign ex­perts and their opin­ions dur­ing the ses­sions. There is talk of in­no­va­tion and qual­ity in the fu­ture growth archi- tec­ture of China," the en­voy noted. "In diplo­macy, we are see­ing China's firm­ness and clar­ity in ad­dress­ing many im­por­tant is­sues," Khalid said.

Premier Li Ke­qiang's govern­ment work re­port presents a prag­matic and can­did as­sess­ment of the tasks ahead, said the am­bas­sador, adding that "it is a prac­ti­cal, step-wise tra­jec­tory of the fu­ture course China has de­cided to take in the fields of econ­omy, so­cial wel­fare and over­all de­vel­op­ment." The am­bas­sador said that the re­port and the press con­fer­ences gave the feel of a con­fi­dent China, which was fully aware of its strengths and chal­lenges, and firmly un­der­stood its in­ter­na­tional role in en­hanc­ing peace and sta­bil­ity.
