    The federal government has decided to appoint former Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) chief Lt Gen (r) Asim Saleem Bajwa as the head of the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor Authority (CPECA) for a period of four years.

    A summary has been sent to the federal cabinet for approval, which will be accepted in the next meeting.

    President Dr Arif Alvi had promulgated an ordinance for the establishment of the CPECA in Oct.

    The authority is aimed at accelerating the pace of CPEC-related activities, will find new drives of growth, unlock the potential of the interlinked production network and global value chains through regional and global connectivity.

    In Aug, Prime Minister Imran Khan had announced that the government was forming a ‘China-Pakistan Economic Corridor Authority (CPECA)’ to ensure timely completion of corridor’s projects.

    Presiding over a meeting at the Prime Minister Office, PM Imran had said: “To ensure uninterrupted progress on CPEC projects, CPEC Authority is being formed.”

    He said the CEPCA would help ensure coordination among the departments concerned. “The completion of CPEC will not only benefit Pakistan and China but also the entire region,” the prime minister had said.

    Good pick, I’m sure he has a wealth of experience in infrastructure investment, public finances, and doubtless a background in developmental economics.

    Why is a military personal in charge of the $60 billion project? I am sure there are competent people with the right academic discipline, within Pakistan to head such vital projects. We don't need 'YES MEN' heading vital posts, which will dictate Pakistan's economic future for the next 20+ years, our economic Gap to Gangadesh is widening, used to be 1/3 now its closer to 1/11..

    Disappointed with IK, where yet again he is compromising on his own principles of 'merit,' well not entirely.. to IK's credit; Mr. General does have some merits (impressive 3 stars to his resume)... just not in the academic domain.. Maybe when Nawaz Sharif gets better, the establishment can call him back to Pakistan to head the CPEC Authority, he is well known for his 'quality' motorways.. heck even got the stamp of approval from the great Dictator Zia-ul-Haq.. of course it does come with an expensive price tag like 10 folds the actual cost, but you can't compromise on 'quality.'

    On a completely different note.. I always wanted to be an Aerospace engineer*.. I probably buy the Lego star trek set, and when I am able to build it a couple of times, I may apply for the Head Engineering post at Airbus..
