Zhao says, Pakistan will see more Chinese technology


Beijing, 18 October 2021 (TDI): Chinese Foreign Ministry Spokesperson, Zhao Lijian stated that after the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) enters its second stage, Pakistan will see more Chinese technology flowing into Pakistan.

“China-Pakistan cooperation has yielded fruit and played a significant role in promoting our bilateral relationships and deepening the friendship between people,” he added.

The Food and Agriculture Organization of United Nations (FAO) and Ministry of National Food Security and Research organized the event jointly in Islamabad in which Syed Fakhar Imam, Minister for National Food Security and Research, stated while speaking as the chief host for an event part of World Food Day that Pakistan should adopt Chinese technology to produce plentiful agriculture-food, in this way Pakistan could succeed like China.

CPEC will increase agricultural production as it’s a part of the second phase, therefore, Pakistan’s Prime Minister Imran Khan while addressing Islamabad’s launching ceremony for ‘Kisan (farmer) Portal’ stated that CPEC includes agriculture within its umbrella and that there’s a training program as well. Hence, the farmers under Pakistan Citizen’s Portal can only get access to this portal.

Moreover, he assured that the Silk Road spirit, which promotes cooperation, peace, openness, inclusion, mutual learning, and mutual benefit, would be preserved. Once the CPEC enters Phase 2, this is a tremendous opportunity for agricultural cooperation, as more Chinese agricultural technologies will flow into Pakistan.

China will maintain close contact with Pakistan in order to find a mechanism for practical cooperation to improve socio-economic growth and people’s well-being to build the China–Pakistan relationship that has a shared future, he stated.
