Sindh Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah reached Beijing to attend Joint Committee Cooperation (JCC) meeting related to China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) projects. 

The Chief Minister is being accompanied by three of his cabinet members and concerned senior officers.

Provincial ministers Manzoor Wassan, Jam Khan Shoro and Syed Nasir Shah, acting chief secretary of development Muhammad Waseem, energy secretary Agha Wasif, transport secretary Taha Farooqi, chairperson of the Board of Investment Naheed Memon and others are with the chief minister during the meeting.

The chief minister will give presentation to the JCC to include three important projects in CPEC. These are the Keti Bandar Power Park and special Jetty, Karachi Circular Railway (KCR) and Special Economic Zone at Dhabeji.

Following the Chief Minister insistence, the federal government has already approved the inclusion of Keti Bandar and KCR in CPEC, while Chinese authorities have also shown interest in the railway project.

Shah has said that he will present this case seriously during the JCC meeting and hopefully all the three projects will be approved for CPEC. “I am sure I will return with good news for the people of Karachi as well as the people of the province and country,” he said.
