Pakistan keen to start CPEC’s next phase


Pakistan plans to give a new push to slow-moving projects being executed under the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) during the upcoming visit of Prime Minister Imran Khan to China.

Islamabad may also request Beijing to sign agreements for the next phase of the multibillion-dollar cooperation between the two countries.

“The Cabinet Committee on China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CCOCPEC) on Friday started deliberations on the deliverables of PM Khan’s visit to Shanghai, which is scheduled for November this year,” said officials at the Ministry of Planning and Development.

Minister for Planning and Development Makhdoom Khusro Bakhtiar chaired the first meeting of the committee in which the projects located in Gwadar that could be taken to their next implementation stage were discussed.
