President recalled that when he was a member of the Pakistan National Assembly in 2015, Chinese President Xi Jinping paid a visit to Pakistan. Further, he stressed that the CPEC is the most critical outcome of the Pakistan-China collaboration.
According to him, the BRI depends on the CPEC established in 2015. It is the largest financial project in Pakistani history. It consists of several infrastructural initiatives to raise Pakistan’s strategic and economic importance.
The project focuses on several industries, including transportation, industrial zones, energy, and infrastructure.
He noted that energy is one of Pakistan’s most pressing demands. The CPEC has assisted in solving the issue. The project includes constructing many energy projects, including coal-free power plants, hydropower plants, and wind power projects.
These energy initiatives will help lower Pakistan’s reliance on fossil fuels and provide the populace with safe, cost-effective electricity.
He further mentioned that the construction of the Gwadar Port and special economic zones (SEZs) are part of the CPEC. The SEZs are intended to promote the industrial sector and provide employment opportunities for Pakistan’s young.
The President claimed that developing the Gwadar Port would improve trade relations with other countries in the region due to its advantageous location on the Arabian Sea.
The CPEC is a win-win for both Pakistan and China. It will help China access new markets and establish a reliable and secure trading route.
One of President Alvi’s main points is the energy that CPEC has brought to Pakistan, particularly for the industrial sector and special economic zones like Gwadar Port. The CPEC transportation infrastructure would also benefit Pakistan’s economy by encouraging trade and commerce.
Furthermore, he declared that CPEC benefits Pakistan and the rest of the region. He mentioned that Central Asian countries want to trade through Gwadar Port.

President Arif Alvi praised China’s significant contribution to the health sector. He commented on China’s efforts to prevent and manage the COVID-19 pandemic. He also acknowledged China’s support for Pakistan during the COVID-19 outbreak.

President Alvi also declared that China and Pakistan have collaborated in technology. Conversations and financial involvement between the two countries in IT training for Pakistanis continue.
The objective is to link Pakistani youth with Chinese human resources to increase IT sector output. According to Alvi, the IT sector can radically transform Pakistan’s economy.
He added that a Chinese-Pakistani partnership would open up new prospects for Pakistanis to work in and advance in the IT industry. China can also benefit from the availability of a qualified Pakistani workforce.
Cooperation with Chinese human resources and young Pakistanis can also lead to improvements in manufacturing and production.

President Alvi addressed Nationalism Issues
President Alvi highlighted the potential for abundance in the energy and food sectors if practical efforts are implemented. He stressed the importance of international cooperation and the need for collaborative efforts to address global concerns.
However, he said the current period of nationalism endangers global corporations and cooperation, which is a risky strategy.
President Alvi also highlighted that for the past 50 years, the world has worked to lower barriers and tear down walls to ensure a continuous supply of goods and services.
The world has been striving to become one in which all humans are equal regarding race, diversity, civilization, religion, color, and caste. All humans share the ability to feel both love and hate.
Consequently, encouraging peace diplomacy and international collaboration allows for global progress and human development.
Nonetheless, the contemporary period of nationalism challenges global corporations and cooperation. The world is growing more fractured, with nations erecting barriers and disintegrating.
This strategy is risky. It can cause inter-national conflict and friction. It is important to promote cooperation among nations and to advance peace diplomacy.
Pakistan: A Reliable Partner in BRI Success
