KARACHI: The Chinese Counsel General (CG) in Karachi, Wang Yu, on Thursday said that the Chinese government was keen to see Karachi a clean city and ready to finance projects for this purpose.
The Chinese envoy was speaking at a ceremony held to hand over Chinese garbage tractor and loading bike here at Governor House, said an official statement on Thursday.
Sindh Governor Imran Ismail thanked the Chinese consulate for offering more garbage tractors and loading bikes to the city government to keep Karachi clean.
The governor recalled that Sino-Pakistan friendship went back decades, which was becoming stronger with the passage of time. In the future, he said, these two bordering countries would expand their cooperation and partnership in more sectors, especially in the economy.
He said the friendship did not exist only between the two governments, but also in the people of the two countries.
“Pakistanis and Chinese do feel at home when they visit each other’s country,” he remarked.
Responding to a question, the governor said that the accountability process was going on across the board and on merit.
For the first time, it was being carried out in a very transparent manner to the satisfaction of even the common man, he said.
Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf members of Sindh Assembly from Karachi Dr Imran Ali Shah, Haleem Adil Shaikh, Mr Adeel and CPLC chief Zubair Habib were also present.
