SHANGHAI: To follow up on all the projects signed during the recent China visit, Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif will set up a dedicated “China Cell” in the prime minister house.

Nawaz revealed this while speaking to the media from China on Sunday.

Thanking the Chinese authorities for their overwhelming response, Nawaz said all the projects – when completed – will be of great benefit to the people of Pakistan.

He asked the nation to pray that these schemes materialise soon and that no untoward incident cause a setback.

Stressing on the need to immediately end the ongoing power crisis, the prime minister said violence and power issues are linked and must be addressed simultaneously.

During his time in China, Nawaz called upon Chinese investors to invest in Pakistan, particularly in the energy sector.

The premier emphasised that the new government in Pakistan was pro-business and investment-friendly.

As part of an effort to boost the annual trade volume between the two countries from $12 billion to $20 billion, leaders from both countries had agreed to construction of economic and industrial cities in Gawadar and other parts of Pakistan.

They had reached agreements over the establishment of trade corridors and railway links as well as in the area of power development.
