Posted In: News Date:Jun 14th, 2019

Prime Minister Imran Khan on Friday, while addressing a meeting of the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO) summit, said that Pakistan is an attractive investment destination and a large market endowed with a rich array of resources.

Addressing the 19th Meeting of the Council of the Heads of State of SCO, the premier said the predominantly young population of Pakistan is imbued with immense energy and creativity.

"Our other endowments include a vast pool of skilled human resource, a large agrarian base, tremendous tourism potential, diverse mineral wealth, and a developed IT infrastructure."

He said Pakistan builds its partnerships based on mutual respect, sovereign equality and equal benefit.

Imran said the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC), which he noted was "the flagship project of President Xi’s far-sighted Belt and Road Initiative", is fast reaching fruition.

"Gwadar Port, at its southern end, marks the only point of convergence of the maritime Belt and the overland Road."
