China to double its imports from Pakistan: Qureshi

Posted In: News Date:Nov 8th, 2018

Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi said that Prime Minister Imran Khan’s first official visit to China was a successful one.

The previous government had only focused on infrastructure projects but the current government had turned the strategic relationship with China into economic ties, the minister said on Thursday.

Qureshi said that China sees its friendship with Pakistan with respect, adding that the joint statement issued by China has removed the rumours surrounding around the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor.

Pakistan’s exports with China will be doubled, Qureshi said without mentioning the time period. However, he said that the perception of an economic crisis in Pakistan will vanish soon.
