ISLAMABAD:China has offered Pakistanis candid advice for putting their country back on the right track. It wants its neighbour to focus on stability, long-term planning, infrastructure development and education.
China’s leadership is keen to make the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CEPC) a roaring success. In the bargain, it expects it to become a role model for its ‘one-belt, one-road’ initiative, which would eventually link more than 60 countries.
For the success of CEPC, the Chinese leadership has been urging political leaders of Pakistan to forge unity and build consensus though parliament, deterring all attempts to sabotage what is just the start of a long road to economic cooperation based on shared prosperity between the two countries.
