    ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan and Chief of the Army Staff (COAS) General Qamar Javed Bajwa will visit China from October 8 to 9, 2019 and hold meetings with the Chinese leadership, including President Xi Jinping and Premier Li Keqiang.

    A number of agreements/MoUs are expected to be signed at a ceremony to be witnessed by the two prime ministers, a foreign office statement issued here on Monday said.

    President Xi Jinping and Premier Li Keqiang will separately host banquets in honour of the Prime Minister Khan, said the statement.

    Prime Minister Imran Khan will be accompanied by a high-level delegation including the foreign minister, minister for railways, minister for planning, development and reform, adviser to prime minister on commerce, special assistant to prime minister on petroleum, Board of Investment (BOI) chairman and senior officials.

    The Chief of Army Staff will join the prime minister’s meetings with Premier Li Keqiang and President Xi Jinping, the statement mentioned.

    The visit of the prime minister was in continuation of the long-established tradition of the leadership of the two countries meeting regularly and consulting closely on bilateral, regional and international issues of mutual interest.

    The prime minister will exchange views on regional developments including the state of peace and security in South Asia arising from the situation in occupied Jammu and Kashmir since August 5, it added.

    The visit will be instrumental in further cementing Pakistan’s economic, investment and strategic ties with China.

    Among other things, the prime minister will apprise the Chinese leadership of the government’s recent landmark decisions to speed-up implementation of the ongoing CPEC (China Pakistan Economic Corridor).

    According to a foreign office statement, there will be interaction with senior representatives of the Chinese business and corporate sector as well for deepening bilateral trade, commercial and investment partnership.

    The prime minister will also be participating in the closing ceremony of the Beijing International Horticulture Expo, as a chief guest, where Chinese PM Li Keqiang will be the host.

    Great... it seems something is cooking between the two countries as PM will also be visiting China soon. CPEC has entered the second stage and the work has been accelerated to an unprecedented pace.

    it is the important visit of Gen Bajwa and IK to discuss the Afghanistan peace process & India Investment future, Kashmir issue, CPEC 2nd & 3rd Phase and how to provide securities on these projects before Xi Jinping visit to India. China, Russia, Turkey, Iran, and Pakistan is emerging as a key player in a region. India is history now in the region player. Thank you, Mr. Modi, Kashmir issue was dead for us but you put the life back on almost forgotten dispute.

    PM Imran embarks on third official visit to China

    October 07, 2019 . Prime Minister Imran Khan has left for China on Monday for an official visit in order to discuss issues of regional and bilateral importance with the Chinese leadership, Radio Pakistan reported.

    He will meet separately with Chinese President Xi Jinping and Premier Li Keqiang.

    According to an statement of the Foreign Office (FO), the prime minister was accompanied by a high-level delegation including Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi, Minister for Railways Sheikh Rashid, Minister for Planning, Development and Reform Makhdum Khusro Bakhtyar and others.

    According to the state-run radio service, the premier will discuss expansion of projects under the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) and cooperation in the agriculture, industrial and socio-economic sectors.

    Last week, Prime Minister Imran said that the removal of all bottlenecks in CPEC projects and their timely completion was the top priority of the government.

    Amid a perceived slowdown on CPEC, the federal Minister for Planning, Development and Reforms Makhdum Khusro Bakhtyar on Sunday said Pakistan would engage China at the highest level for talks on several big projects in the fields of hydropower, oil refinery and steel mills.

    During the premier's visit, the two sides will discuss the "immediate implementation" of the second phase of the China-Pakistan free trade agreement (FTA). They will also discuss the abolition of the quota for all Pakistani agro products, Radio Pakistan added.

    The prime minister is also expected to address the China Pakistan Business Forum in Beijing and to meet with Chinese entrepreneurs as well as the heads of different companies, Radio Pakistan reported.

    This is the premier's third visit to China in less than a year.

    In April, he visited Beijing to attend the second Belt and Road Forum and for talks with the Chinese leadership on the expanded CPEC. His first official visit had come in November last year.

    Army chief in China

    Ahead of the premier's departure, Chief of Army Staff (COAS) Gen Qamar Javed Bajwa arrived in China on an official visit, the military's media wing said.

    The army chief is scheduled to meet the Chinese military leadership including the Peoples Liberation Army commander, vice chairman of the Central Military Commission and commander Southern Theater Command.

    He will also join Prime Minister Imran's meetings with the Chinese premier and President Xi, the Inter-Services Public Relations said.

    From what I have heard, big deals are in the works, especially for the Navy and Airforce.

    On the civilian side, next stage of CPEC, including manufacturing, infrastructure and agricultural and other tech.

    In my opinion to Kick start Gwadar
    We should


    a) Open Tank Manufacturing Factory in Gwadar
    b) Open Extension of KAMRA in Gwadar
    c) Open Shipyard for Navy
    d) At least 1 Auto Manufacturing for Military (Jeeps, Trucks, Heavy Bikes )


    This would attract new generation Pakistani workforce to move closer to work in the Gwadar area
