    In his address at the opening ceremony of China International Import Expo (CIIE) in Shanghai early Monday morning, Prime Minister Imran Khan stressed that Pakistan will be made a more conducive and competitive market for businesses and investments.

    The premier, accompanied by Finance Minister Asad Umer, Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi among others, is on the last leg of his maiden trip to the friendly neigbourhood country.

    Ladies and Gentlemen, As the Belt and Road Initiative gives shape to a global community of shared interests, this Expo will help spread dividends of freer trade, among more closely integrated economies. @ImranKhanPTI #PMIKatCIIE

    Speaking as the chief guest at the CIIE, he emphasised that while unilateral commercialism was aggressively sought and with protectionism on the rise, Pakistan took great comfort in Chinese President Xi Jinping’s affirmation that Beijing’s doors for Islamabad will only open wider and never shut.

    Hailing the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI), PM Imran said it gave shape to shared interests and expressed hope that the CIIE would help spread dividends of free trade amongst closely integrated economies.

    Reflecting on the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC), he said the project will not only benefit Pakistan but many other regions. “It will cut distances and costs and bring much-needed resources to the producers and products to the consumers,” said PM Imran.

    The CPEC, he continued, is a mechanism to forge even closer connectivity between different regions, including Middle East, Central Asia as well as South Asia. He was confident that it would open up new vistas for economic growth more investment opportunities.

    On the domestic front, PM Imran said the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government had initiated deep and meaningful reforms in all sectors and every aspect of governance. “We are committed to improving transparency and accountability by introducing seamless smart technology solutions.”

    The prime minister highlighted that Pakistan was blessed with an abundant array of resources, ranging from minerals to fertile land to wealth of renewables and the most diverse landscape with 12 climatic zones.

    “Our industries are already producing a variety of goods – textiles, engineering, IT and medicine and surgical instruments,” he said, adding: “However, our greatest and most promising source is the human. We have a young, vibrant population whose potential will be exploited.”
