PM Says CPEC’s Revitalization in Focus During China Visit

ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif on Tuesday said during his visit to China today (Tuesday), he would hold discussions with the Chinese leadership on strengthening of bilateral relations, particularly revitalization of the multi-billion dollar China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) project.

The prime minister said the second phase of CPEC promises to usher in a new era of socio-economic progress that would uplift quality of the people’s lives.

“There is a lot to learn from Chinese economic miracle,” he said in a tweet, stressing that his discussions with Chinese leadership would focus on revitalization of CPEC among many other things.

The prime minister said he was honoured to be among the first few leaders to have been invited after the historic 20th National Congress of the Communist Party of China.

“At a time when the world is grappling with multiple challenges, Pakistan and China stand together as friends and partners,” he said.
