2014-10-27
 

H.E. Chief Minister Dr. Adbul Malik Baloch,

H.E. Speaker Assembly Mir Jan Muhammad Khan Jamali,

President Balochistan Economic Forum Mr. Sardar Shaukat Popalzai,

Ladies and Gentlemen,

Assalam-o-Alaikum!

It's my great pleasure to attend the "China-Pakistan Economic Corridor & Gwadar-Opportunity Conference". First of all, I would like to thank Mr. Shaukat Popalzai, President of the Balochistan Economic Forum for inviting me and I deeply appreciate his efforts in arranging this conference.

Ladies and Gentlemen,

China and Pakistan are good neighbors, close friends, trusted partners and dear brothers. The all-weather friendship and all-round strategic cooperative partnership between us, transcends the change of time and international politics, full of vitality and sets an good example of state to state relations.

In recent years, China and Pakistan have made great progress in economic cooperation as well as in culture, education and people to people exchanges. In Balochistan, we have successfully conducted mega cooperation projects like Gwadar Deep Sea Port and Saindak Gold &Copper projects etc.

With the great idea of building China Pakistan economic corridor initiated when Chinese Premier Li Keqiang visited Pakistan last May, the friendly cooperation between China and Pakistan are bracing new opportunities.

This corridor consists of road and rail network, pipelines, cable lines and trade routes, will link south Pakistan's Gwadar with Kashgar, Xinjiang in western China. It will provide plenty of jobs and development opportunities to the local people. Once completed, this corridor will not only be beneficial to China and Pakistan, but also greatly contribute to the whole region. Meanwhile, Gwadar port can serve as a new regional trade and economic center. Now both countries are working hard on the corridor and I am in full confidence that with the joint efforts, we'll be able to make this mega project a new milestone in China Pakistan friendship.

Ladies and Gentlemen,

Balochistan is vast in land and rich in natural resources, which entails large potential for development. The Chinese consulate General in Karachi will continue to encourage Chinese companies to invest in Pakistan, including Balochistan. We would like to work with the federal and provincial government and friends from all walks of life, deepen the pragmatic cooperation between both sides, and contribute to the China Pakistan economic corridor and regional economic development. Finally we will realize the common development dream of both peoples. I hope the Balochistan Economic Forum will continue to play an important role in promoting China Pakistan economic cooperation, especially cooperation between China and Balochistan.

Let's join hands together, vigorously advance our all weather friendship and all round cooperation partnership to a new high!

I sincerely wish the conference a full success!

May Pakistan prosperous and its people happy!

China Pakistan Dosti Zindabad!

 Thank you very much.
