Ensure CPEC Translates Into A Game Changer

Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf promised in their 100 days agenda:

Launch action plan to transform CPEC into a true economic corridor as opposed to an infrastructure project. Enable growth in agriculture, industries and services sector by creating better two-way linkages with China.

You can read these promises in the 100 Days agenda document released by PTI available HERE in English and HERE in Urdu.

Below are the actions by Imran Khan and his Governance as a step towards fulfilling this promise:

Update 1:

“Minister for Planning, Development and Reforms Makhdoom Khusro Bakhtiar has said that development of the Special Economic Zones (SEZs) under the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) is the priority area of the new government to ensure creation of new jobs, achieve high economic growth and encourage exports.”

The meeting of planning minister shows how governance is interested in ensuring CPEC translates into a game changer and thus this promise status should also change to IN PROGRESS.
