BEIJING: The China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) has achieved major progress since its launch seven years ago, bringing a total of $25 billion of foreign direct investment (FDI) to Pakistan, the Chinese Foreign Ministry said on Wednesday.
During his regular briefing in Beijing, Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Wang Wenbin noted that many projects have been started or completed under the CPEC, a dynamic project of the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) launched by President Xi Jinping.
He particularly mentioned the completion of Orange Line Metro Line (OLMT) in Lahore, Pakistan’s first electric-powered public transport project. “Last month as an early harvest project, the Orange Line, was made operational, marking the beginning of the subway era for Pakistan,” he said.
Wang said that projects completed under CPEC had enhanced infrastructure and power supply in Pakistan and created employment opportunities for locals, besides contributing towards the growth of gross domestic product (GDP).
“These projects enhanced infrastructure and electricity supply in the country and created more than 70,000 direct positions and contributed 1 to 2 percentage points of the country’s GDP growth,” the spokesperson added.
Giving example of Afghanistan which was importing food and other essential items through the Gwadar port, Wang noted that CPEC had not only promoted development in the two countries but also helped regional connectivity and prosperity.
“Gwadar port, since the first half of this year, started shipping cargo, weighing about 20,000 tonnes that carried wheat, sugar and fertilisers to Afghanistan, the spokesperson told reporters. “This created around 1,000 jobs,” he added.
Reiterating support to the flagship project, which was launched after the consensus of the leaderships of the two countries, he said, China’s support to CPEC would continue as the two countries “will work together to implement our leaders’ consensus”.
Appreciating the positive remarks made by Pakistan’s top leaderships towards the CPEC projects, Wang said, “We have noted the remarks about CPEC which is an important pilot project and flagship projects of China-Pakistan cooperation and BRI development.”
In response to a question about third party and other countries’ participation in CPEC, he said that the Chinese side would welcome interested countries to join the project and other projects of BRI to jointly contribute to regional and global stability and prosperity.

$25B in 7 years?
That's the same FDI for us in a year (2019).
CPEC will turn Pakistan into manufacturing behemoth. The toll collected on China diverted trade alone will pay off the debt to China, simple and easy. And there are 100's of SEZ's coming all long CPEC route which will transform Pakistan. In a few years Pakistan will be exporting twice as many products as they import from China. All other countries in the region will come to nothing after CPEC is operational.
