In an interview with PTV, he said the mega project will be a game changer for Pakistan.
Ahsan Iqbal said Gilgit-Baltistan and Balochistan will become gateways of CPEC.
He said Trade Zones will be set up in Islamabad, all the four provinces, AJK, Gilgit-Baltistan, and FATA.
He said Chinese and Pakistani companies will make large-scale investment in these zones, which will not only create new jobs, but also help transfer new technology to Pakistan.
The Interior Minister said a special force of some 10,000 security personnel has been constituted for providing security to the people working on CPEC related projects. APP/AFP
