Pakistan determined to link CPEC with Central Asia, EU
ISLAMABAD, Sept 23 (Gwadar Pro) - Pakistan is determined to link the China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) with Central Asia and European Union, a senior Pakistani cabinet member said on Wednesday afternoon.
“This (linking CPEC with Central Asia and EU) is part of Prime Minister Imran Khan’s global vision on economic narrative,” Information Minister Fawad Chaudhry stated at business conference here.
He mentioned that Pakistan recently signed two agreements with Uzbekistan for building rail link between Karachi and Gwadar with Tashkent via Mazar Sharif and starting truck service to Central Asia.
“PM Imran Khan believes linking CPEC with Central Asia and European Union is essential for global connectivity. With the realization of PM’s vision, Pakistan’s status in the region would change with world’s biggest market on one side and second biggest market on the other side,” he added.
