Pakistan offers CPEC partnership to leading western nation
ISLAMABAD - Pakistan has offered partnership to Germany in the multi billon dollars CPEC project.
Pakistan has offered Germany to invest in the Special Economic Zones (SEZs) of China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC).
“The government is focusing on export-oriented policies to boost the country’s exports and put economy on a growth trajectory,” Zafar Hasan, Secretary Planning, Development & Reform, said while talking to a delegation from the European economic giant, in a meeting at his office.
Jens Jokisch, Deputy Ambassador of Germany to Pakistan, led the mission comprising leading business concerns.
Out of total nine SEZs, being developed under the CPEC , Pakistan is striving to kick-start around four of them as early as possible as a yawning trade deficit is wreaking havoc on the economy with exports down in the dumps and imports on the rise.
