ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan has instructed relevant agencies to take all necessary steps to offer land, power, and gas connections, as well as tax incentives, in order to encourage more Chinese firms to invest in Pakistan and populate Special Economic Zones.
“Investment is needed to boost industrialisation in Pakistan,” Prime Minister remarked while chairing a meeting on enabling Chinese investors in Special Economic Zones.
“It’s important to generate as many job possibilities as possible for our rising population, which is 65 percent under the age of 35,” he continued.
Earlier, the prime minister was informed that work on five SEZs, namely Dhabeji in Sindh, Rashakai in KP, Bostan in Balochistan, Allama Iqbal Industrial City in Punjab, and Gwadar in Balochistan, was now underway.
Each of these SEZs will have a one-stop shop operating facility, as well as a facilitation centre at the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) Authority, to address all of the concerns of potential Chinese investors.
The Chinese Ambassador to Pakistan, Nong Rong, was in attendance, as were federal ministers Shaukat Tarin, Makhdoom Khusro Bakhtiar, Asad Umar, Muhammad Hammad Azhar, Adviser to the Prime Minister on Commerce Abdul Razak Dawood, Special Assistant to the Prime Minister on CPEC Affairs Khalid Mansoor, and other senior officials.
