Pakistan-China Industrial Cooperation #Thread


Pak-China Industrial cooperation, compounded with the guidance of Chinese experts, will provide an excellent opportunity for Pakistan to strengthen its industrial capacity & capability.


CPEC's potential impact on Pakistan has been compared to that of the Marshall Plan by USA in post-war Europe. Analysts predict that CPEC will result in creation of upwards of 2.3 m jobs between 2015–2030, & add 2 to 2.5 % points to the country's annual economic growth.

The future of Pakistan lies in export led growth strategy, which makes development of Special Economic Zones (SEZs) vital to improve the country's capacity and to complement the export requirements.
