Political stability, continuity of policies imperative for economic development: Ahsan


Minister for Planning & Development Ahsan Iqbal has said Pakistan should learn from China for economic and technological development.

He was addressing the award ceremony held in recognition of outstanding Pakistani staff of the CPEC Projects 2022 in Islamabad on Friday.

He said we must first ensure political stability, continuity of policies, and social solidarity because economic development does not take place in an atmosphere of conflict and polarization.

Highlighting the friendship bond between Pakistan and China, the minister said the changes in world affairs have also brought changes in relationships.

On the occasion, Chinese ambassador Nong Rong said in 2022, against the challenge of global economic downturn and historical floods in Pakistan, the CPEC projects have made good progress.

He said Karot Hydropower started commercial operation in June to provide cheap and clean electricity.
