Chinese Vice Premier to Reach Pakistan Tomorrow to Mark 10th Anniversary of CPEC

Chinese Vice Premier Liu He will arrive in Pakistan tomorrow to mark the 10th anniversary of the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC).

Liu will be the highest-ranking Chinese official to visit Pakistan since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. His visit is seen as a sign of the importance that China attaches to CPEC, which is a major part of China’s Belt and Road Initiative.

During his visit, Liu is expected to meet with Pakistani Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif and other top officials. He is also expected to attend a ceremony to mark the 10th anniversary of CPEC.

CPEC is a multi-billion dollar project that aims to connect China’s Xinjiang province with the Arabian Sea through Pakistan. The project includes a number of infrastructure projects, such as roads, railways, and power plants.

CPEC has been a major driver of economic growth in Pakistan. The project has created jobs, boosted exports, and improved connectivity.

Liu’s visit is a sign of China’s commitment to CPEC and its continued support for Pakistan. The visit is also seen as an opportunity to strengthen the bilateral relationship between China and Pakistan.

Here are some of the key achievements of CPEC in the past 10 years:

  • The construction of the Gwadar port, which is now a major trade hub between China and the Middle East.
  • The construction of the Karakoram Highway has improved connectivity between Pakistan and China.
  • The construction of several power plants, which have helped to reduce Pakistan’s reliance on imported energy.
  • The creation of thousands of jobs in Pakistan.

CPEC is expected to continue to play a major role in the economic development of Pakistan in the years to come. The project has the potential to transform Pakistan into a regional economic hub.
