Planning Commission Deputy Chairman Sartaj Aziz says China has become a reliable partner in Pakistan’s national development efforts as their relations have become a model of state-to-state relations.
Talking to a Chinese business delegation in Islamabad on Monday, he said Pakistan is an ideal destination for Chinese investors due to the goodwill for Chinese and potential of investments in CPEC .
The Deputy Planning Commission said Pakistan’s macroeconomic indicators continue to solidify grounds for a sustained upward growth trajectory.
He said gross domestic product growth increased last year to a decade high of 5.3 percent. Sartaj Aziz said supportive policies like historic low interest rate, high infrastructure spending and better law and order have encouraged a number of firms to pursue expansion plans.
He said nine special economic zones will be built under CPEC , which will be open for investors across the world to invest in their fields of interest.
