Ambassador of Turkmenistan meets
The Chairman Senate said that Gwadar Port provides shortest route for trade and economic activities to Central Asia. He noted it the shortest route for the landlocked Central Asian States especially Turkmenistan.
Furthermore, he underscored the need for boosting cooperation in trade, transport, industry, agriculture and other sectors.
For that purpose, he called for activating the relevant platforms to strengthen economic cooperation between the two brotherly countries.
Sadiq Sanjrani proposed that Pakistan Turkmenistan joint governmental commission should be convened to hold meeting as early as possible.
Pakistan eyes CPEC benefits
Most importantly, Pakistan remains optimistic that China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) will help enhance regional trade.
The government of Pakistan considers Gwadar port a major source for regional connectivity for trade.
However, US trade war with China also remains problematic for the region.
But, Pakistan carefully moves forward to complete CPEC.
Despite all odds, China Belt and Road Initiative including CPEC may strengthen regional connectivity.
