    "We are happy over the announcement of CPEC with a total volume of investment more than US dollars 40 billion and this project will attract multi billion dollars further investment to Pakistan as it is being considered one of the biggest indicator for the better economic future of Pakistan", he commented.
    "CPEC will change the entire economy of Pakistan and it will be a huge project which will open many windows of development in Pakistan. It will not only be beneficial for Pakistan and China but for the entire region as well as whole Asia", he maintained.

    It is a very positive development for us. We have to be patient and realize that nations will always be hesitant to buy a new product especially in such a competitive market of defence sales. I am sure after a couple of sales the business will boom. I personally can't await for the day when we sell our jets.
