‘CPEC phase-II to generate mass employment’

CPEC Authority Chairman Lt Gen (r) Asim Saleem Bajwa has said that after successful completion of phase one, the country is gearing up for the phase-II of the multi-billion dollar China-Pakistan Economic Corridor project, envisioned to generate massive employment opportunities for Pakistanis.

Asim Bajwa, tweeting from his fresh Twitter handle for the first time on Tuesday, said the CPEC project with across the board acceptability, is already bringing relief in energy and infrastructure sectors.

“Time to gear up for phase-II which is envisioned to generate mass employment through more projects, mass industrialisation, agricultural and socio-economic uplift,” he wrote.

The statement comes a week after Prime Minister Imran Khan directed all concerned ministries to set goals for schemes and ensure inter-governmental coordination for early conclusion of phase two of the multibillion-dollar project.

“The projects should be finalised on the basis of socioeconomic development and be completed at the earliest,” the prime minister said while chairing a high-level meeting held to review the progress on various projects under the CPEC last week.
