On August 30th, Ambassador Yao Jing met with Abdul Razak Dawood, the Pakistan’s Adviser to PM on Commerce, Textile, Industry & Production, and Investment. Dr. Wang Zhihua, the Economic and Commercial Counsellor of Chinese Embassy in Pakistan and Secretary of the Ministry of Commerce of Pakistan Mohammad Younus Dagha was present.

While extending congratulation to Abdul Razzaq Dawood for taking up the post, Ambassador Yao said that since China and Pakistan became all-weather strategic cooperative partners, great progress have been achieved in recent years in the economic and trade exchanges and cooperation between two countries. He stated that China is willing to deepen its cooperation with Pakistan’s new government, further expand Chinese investment to Pakistan and improve its people’s livelihood. China would like to assist Pakistan in developing manufacturing and export-oriented processing industries, and enlarge its imports from Pakistan by harnessing the opportunity brought about by the Belt and Road Initiative and China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC). In this regard, China will do its best to facilitate Pakistan’s participation in first China International Import Expo to be held in Shanghai this November, believing this event will benefit people from both countries and industrial and commercial fields through bilateral economic and trade cooperation.

Speaking highly of Pakistan-China relationship, Adviser Abdul Razak Dawood said that Pakistan firmly supports multilateral free trade system and cooperation under the Belt and Road Initiative, and will step up its economic and trade exchanges with China, make full preparation for Pakistan’s participation in the upcoming Expo. Pakistan’s new government is looking forward to further investment from China and hopes that China will keep on supporting Pakistan’s industrialization and improve the imbalanced trade between Pakistan and China, in order to lift economic and industrial cooperation between the two sides up to a new level.
