Chinese buying mission to soon visit Pakistan: envoy


ISLAMABAD: Chinese Ambassador H.E. Yao Jing on Friday said a buying mission from China would soon visit Pakistan which will greatly help exporters of the country.

“A buying mission is coming to Pakistan. Such buying missions would be of great importance for Pakistani exporters and export growth of the country,” he said in a meeting with Advisor to Prime Minister on Textile, Commerce, Industry & Production and Investment Abdul Razak Dawood in Islamabad.

Abdul Razak Dawood underlined the need for enhancement of export to China and to the global market.

The advisor stated that in parallel to strong political affinity, Pakistan and China enjoyed excellent trade and commercial relations cemented further by signing of the China-Pakistan Free Trade Agreement (CPFTA) in 2006.

“Signing of the China -Pakistan Economic Corridor added another dimension to the ever growing trade and economic relations between the two brotherly countries,” he said.

He felicitated the Chinese Ambassador for holding a mega event like China International Import Expo in November, 2018, at Shanghai and expressed gratitude for declaring Pakistan “Guest of Honour” during the event.

Both side agreed to work more closely to build a brighter and prosperous future for the region.

In a message on Defence Day, Yao Jing said China would continue supporting Pakistan in safeguarding its sovereignty and ensuring its national security.

Earlier, Spokesperson of the Chinese Foreign Ministry rejected a media report regarding delay in the construction of the CPEC, saying the Pakistani government had termed the project a priority for the country.

“We have noticed the relevant reports and also noted that the officials interviewed by the Financial Times have come forward to clarify it,” Geng Shuang said during his regular briefing.

He said the Pakistani Ministry of Commerce issued a statement saying that the Pakistani officials quoted by the Financial Times were out of context and distorted the original intention, and the Pakistani side refused to acknowledge the report.
