CPEC joint cooperation committee follow meeting underway

ISLAMABAD: Minister for Planning and Development Ahsan Iqbal is chairing the 6th joint cooperation committee on China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) follow up meeting in Islamabad.
Addressing a post 6th joint cooperation committee on CPEC follow up meeting in Islamabad this morning, Ahsan Iqbal said utmost transparency is being ensured in all projects of China-Pakistan Economic Corridor. He said some elements are hell-bent to hamper Pakistan’s development by spreading confusion over these projects.
The Minister said the national leadership has foiled all the conspiracies by taking all the provinces, Azad Kashmir, and Gilgit-Baltistan into confidence.
The Minister said bulk of the investment under CPEC is in the energy sector directly by Chinese companies.
Ahsan Iqbal said infrastructure is the second most important sector of CPEC. Referring to it he said Beijing proposes a panel of three Chinese companies and Islamabd selects the lowest bidding company. Ahsan Iqbal on this occasion thanked Chief Minister Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Pervaiz Khattak for his cooperation in furthering CPEC.
Azad Kashmir Prime Minister Raja Farooq Haider and Chief Minister Gilgit-Baltistan Hafiz Hafeezur Rehman also attended the meeting.
