Minister for Planning said, Pak-China friendship had become a model for the world.
Felicitating the nation on 65th anniversary of Pak-China Diplomatic relations, Minister for Planning, Prof. Ahsan Iqbal says China-Pakistan Economic Corridor framework would not only improve Pakistan’s economy but strengthen its defence as well.
In an interview to APP, he said the entire nation will have to play its role in the implementation of this vital initiative by exhibiting a complete unity and solidarity.
Ahsan Iqbal invited the foreign businessmen to come and invest as there is complete political stability and conducive environment for the foreign investment in Pakistan.
He said, Pak-China friendship had become a model for the world. He said China has been supporting Pakistan unconditionally in the last 65 years while Pakistan responded positively to its time-tested friend at all the international fora.
The Minister said, although both the countries are very close on the political front but the present government after coming into power, did transform this friendship into an economic partnership.
Ahsan Iqbal said CPEC would not only change geo-economic situation of this region but provide a key position to Pakistan with regard to South Asia, Central Asia and China.
