QUETTA: Balochistan Governor retired Justice Amanullah Khan Yasinzai has said that China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) is a mega project which will change the fate of the entire region after its completion.

Speaking at a seminar at Emerging Policy Making Institute (EPI) on the theme of Coronavirus, CPEC and China’s Global Leadership here on Friday, he said that economy, health facilities and employment had been badly affected by coronavirus across the world.

In this situation, he said, China’s role was very important as it had proved itself to be a global leader by providing financial assistance and medicines.

“We appreciate and give great value to China’s human friendly role and we are not only standing together in the war against coronavirus, but we are also united against the common enemy of the two countries,” Justice Yasinzai said.

Chinese Ambassador to Pakistan Yao Jing and leaders of different political parties were also present on the occasion.

“Pakistan and China have paved the way for removing obstacles to the development of the entire region and both countries are against forces depriving the people of the region of the fruits of development and prosperity,” the governor said.

Speaking on the occasion, Chinese Ambassador to Pakistan Mr Yao Jing said that the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor was a journey towards economic regionalisation in the world.

He said that CPEC had founded peace, development and was a win-win model for all countries of the region.
