4 min read

From October 17-18, Caretaker Prime Minister Anwaar-ul-Haq Kakar will attend the Third Belt and Road Forum (BRF) for International Cooperation in Beijing.

“The prime minister will attend the BRF’s opening ceremony and address the high-level forum entitled ‘Connectivity in an Open Global Economy,’” the Prime Minister Office said on Saturday.

On this occasion, PM Kakar will meet with Chinese President Xi Jinping. The Forum will also be attended by senior Chinese officials, business leaders, and investors.

According to caretaker Foreign Minister Jalil Abbas Jillani, Kakar will discuss joint ventures with Chinese companies during his visit earlier today (Sunday). During the upcoming visit, several memorandums of understanding (MoUs) regarding agricultural, health, industrial, green energy, and space technology cooperation will be signed.

In addition, the foreign minister said that the visit would enhance bilateral cooperation between Pakistan and China as “Iron Brothers” and would strengthen bilateral relations.

In addition to reviewing the entire range of cooperation, the visit will also provide a chance to discuss Pak-China strategic cooperation. Additionally, the visit marks CPEC’s tenth anniversary as well as the Belt and Road Initiative’s tenth anniversary.

Xingjian, a region bordering Pakistan and eight other countries, will also be visited by the caretaker prime minister, the foreign minister stated.

As a model of excellent economic cooperation despite external security challenges, the CPEC has proven to be an economic success story for both sides.

As a result of the ongoing bilateral cooperation, the FM said both countries coordinated to blunt terrorist activities. We are now entering the second phase of CPEC, which is related to industrial, technological, and agricultural cooperation, he said.

Several foreign leaders are expected to attend China’s third Belt and Road forum from October 17 to 18, Beijing said Wednesday.

In addition to delivering a keynote speech at the opening ceremony, Chinese President Xi Jinping will host a welcome banquet for foreign leaders and heads of international organizations.

Vladimir Putin has confirmed he will attend next week’s event, for which China only confirmed the dates and duration on Wednesday.

The event will see China celebrate the 10-year anniversary of its vast Belt and Road infrastructure initiative, which Beijing said in a white paper on Tuesday had generated over two trillion dollars in contracts around the world — the same as the economies of some of the world’s largest countries.
