CPEC to benefit Pak and China


LAHORE: Punjab University Vice Chancellor Dr Zafar Moeen has said that Pakistan and China would develop each other through CPEC and we must appreciate China’s development plan for Pakistan.

He was addressing the concluding ceremony of a two-day international conference on China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) political, economic and social perspectives, organised by Punjab University Department of History & Pakistan Studies on Tuesday.

Addressing the ceremony, Dr Zafar Moeen said that no country was willing to invest in Pakistan but China was investing an unprecedented 46 billion dollars for the country’s development in major sectors. He said that China would get the shortest trade route to export its goods while Pakistan would also take maximum benefits from the opportunity.

He said that Pakistani people were facing poverty and CPEC would bring prosperity to the households. He said that through CPEC Integrated Study Centre at PU, we would portray the right image of CPEC before the international community because some negative lobbies were propagating against the CPEC.
