ISLAMABAD: Ambassador of China to Pakistan Yao Jing urged the local business community on Thursday to actively participate in China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) projects to maximise business prospects.
He was talking to a delegation of the Islamabad Chamber of Commerce and Industry (ICCI) that called on him at his office, led by its president Sheikh Amir Waheed. Yao said Pakistan’s private sector should gear up for joint ventures and investments in the special economic zones (SEZs) being established in Pakistan under CPEC as SEZs would offer them good scope for JVs and partnerships with Chinese counterparts.
He added that China has achieved rapid economic development and Pakistan should take benefit from Chinese experience for accelerating its economic growth by developing close cooperation.
