ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan on Saturday directed the authorities concerned to facilitate all Chinese investors, who were setting up industries in Pakistan, on priority basis by resolving their issues related to road connectivity and the provision of utilities.

The premier’s remarks came during a meeting with a Chinese business delegation led by Chen Yan from Challenge Fashion. The meeting was also attended by Energy Minister Muhammad Hammad Azhar, Advisor on Commerce Abdul Razzak Dawood, SAPM Shahbaz Gill, SAPM Khalid Mansoor and Chinese Ambassador Nong Rong.

“We will support Chinese businesses in Pakistan on a priority basis, and are grateful to them for their keen interest in accelerating their investment in Special Economic Zones (SEZs),” said the Prime Minister.

During the meeting, the prime minister was told that Chinese businessmen are almost ready to start operations in the glass, ceramics and information technology sectors.

The prime minister said that Pakistan and China were connected not only in the past or present but would remain united through their future generations too. “We appreciate the valuable relationship of the peoples of the two countries,” he added.

It is worth mentioning that OPPO, one of the leading tech manufacturers in the world, is going to establish a local mobile manufacturing unit and a research and development centre in Pakistan.

It would not only save a lot of foreign exchange reserves on the import of smartphones annually but would also create employment opportunities for our tech graduates.

‘Chinese Ambassador’s remarks’

In his remarks, Chinese Ambassador in Pakistan Nong Rong said that he was very happy since the prime minister’s previous meeting with the Chinese businessmen on September 13, a lot of issues had been resolved and great progress had been achieved.

He said that the Chinese entrepreneurs were encouraged and hoping great progress after this meeting. “We will send more positive information to China to encourage more Chinese businessmen to make decision to invest in Pakistan,” he commented.
