PM urges Chinese businessmen to seize investment opportunities in Pakistan

Rising Kashmir

Pakistan's new Prime Minister Imran Khan and China's President Xi Jinping were preparing to meet on Friday amid concerns over Pakistan's growing fiscal crisis and its ability to repay Chinese loans granted as part of Xi's Belt and Road initiative.

Khan is on a four-day visit to China and the two countries have reaffirmed to strengthen the "China-Pakistan All-Weather Strategic Cooperative Partnership" - Beijing and Islamabad considers each other as "iron brothers".

"No other nation has held so many powerful people accountable for corruption in the last five years", he said, and added that his government and party wanted to learn from China in this area also because white collar crime was very hard to detect.

Khan was given a ceremonial welcome at the Great Hall of people before he held talks with Li.

Meanwhile, the bus service is an attempt to bolster trade ties and increase friendship between Pakistan and China, but the issue revolves around the bs route that passes through PoK, where the CPEC passes, as reported by The Indian Express.

The two sides firmly move forward the CPEC, while ensuring the smooth operations of the completed projects and advancing the ongoing projects, he said.

Sharing his vision of Naya Pakistan, the Prime Minister congratulated the Chinese premier on successful anti corruption drive, poverty alleviation and modernization of China based on innovation and IT.

Many people in Pakistan believe that Imran Khan is a reformist. Highlighting the vast market potential and geostrategic advantage of Pakistan, the prime minister encouraged the business leaders to explore investment opportunities in the diverse socioeconomic sectors.

He was addressing a ceremony at the Central Party School of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China in Beijing, during his first official visit to China since assuming charge as the Prime Minister of Pakistan in August this year.

Asked about the cooperation on counter-terrorism, Kong said: "all areas of cooperation have been covered and we also expressed positive wish for strengthening cooperation". Now we seeks Chinese help to cope with the white-collar crimes. "These relations have not only benefited the two all-weather strategic partners but the region and world", he said.

"China appreciates Pakistan's quest for peace through dialogue, cooperation, and negotiation, on the basis of mutual respect and equality, and supports Pakistan's efforts for improvement of Pakistan-India relations and for settlement of outstanding disputes between the two countries", the statement added.

Earlier, President Xi warmly welcomed Prime Minister Khan and his delegation upon their arrival at the Great Hall of the People.

China's stand he said is that the "cooperation between China and Pakistan has nothing to do with the territorial dispute and will not affect China's principled position on Kashmir", he said.

Later a separate meeting was held between State Councillor Wang Yi and Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi. The two ministers discussed further building the bilateral relationship on the 10-point agenda covering multifaceted practical cooperation.
