President Wang An Meets with Pakistani Ambassador to China Naghmana Hashmi
On the morning of June 15, President Wang An met with Pakistani Ambassador to China Naghmana Hashmi. The two sides had in-depth exchanges on the participation of CIECC in the construction of China-Pakistan Economic Corridor and other related work. Vice President Dou Hao and heads of the General Office and the Overseas Economic Cooperation Department under CIECC were present at the meeting.
President Wang An said that CIECC has been deeply engaged in the work concerning the China-Pakistan cooperation. Especially since the Belt and Road Initiative was put forward, CIECC has made recommendations for the development of Pakistan’s parks, the construction of China-Pakistan Economic Corridor, and the construction and operation of Gwadar Port. It has also sent an expert panel to conduct research on Pakistan’s parks and livelihood projects many times.
Ambassador Hashmi said that flagship projects under the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor, including Gwadar Port, have achieved remarkable progress. The China-Pakistan cooperation projects have not only refreshed the local image, but also improve the employment and life of the local people. The China-Pakistan cooperation projects have been affected by the covid-19 outbreak at the end of 2019, but their construction can be completed on time. Also, Pakistan has not arranged any evacuation, which expresses its support for the relationship between “Iron Brothers” and reflects its confidence in the Chinese government and leaders and its great trust in China’s ability to address the epidemic. Since the outbreak of the epidemic, Pakistani people have been infected with the novel coronavirus, or even lost their lives in many countries, but Pakistan’s 20,000-plus students and 28,000 people in China have not had any cases of infection. Pakistan’s embassy in China remained open during the epidemic and did not close for a day. The friendship between China and Pakistan is even closer and firmer despite many tests. The Ambassador thanked the Chinese government and people for their selfless help at the critical moment of the epidemic, hoping that CIECC will continue to provide consulting services for the China-Pakistan cooperation projects.
