Pakistan takes the important action over CPEC

ISLAMABAD - President Dr. Arif Alvi has promulgated an ordinance to establish an Authority on China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC).

The ordinance was promulgated by the president under clause (1) of Article 89 of the Constitution.

Extending to the whole of Pakistan, the ordinance is aimed at accelerating the pace of CPEC related projects and evaluating the new drivers of growth.

It will also unlock the potential of interlinked production network and global value chains through regional and global connectivity.

The decision has come at time when Prime Minister Imran Khan is visiting China on an important two-day visit where he will hold meetings with the Chinese President and Prime Minister to discuss issues of regional and bilateral significance.

Reportedly, PM will apprise Chinese leadership on the situation of Kashmir and steps taken to implement CPEC related projects.
