Shanghai became the third city in mainland China to have a rapid transit system after the first line opened in 1993. Since then, the Shanghai Metro has become one of the fastest-growing transit systems in the world with several lines still under construction.
The PPP leader also visited one of the city’s largest power plants, Pucheng Power Shanghai. According to sources, Bilawal expressed an intention to use the innovation and technological advancements used in China to enhance development projects in Karachi.
