With a total area of 4,000 sqm, the centre would be an important platform for commodity display, distribution channels development and commercial liaison, and as well as serving as a window to showcase Pakistan’s rich history, landscapes and cultural heritage.

Speaking on the occasion, Ambassador Haque highlighted the strong all-weather ties between Pakistan and China.

Appreciating the role of Chinese partners in conceiving, designing and implementing this key initiative, the ambassador expressed the hope that this centre would serve as a unique model and benchmark of win-win cooperation and mutually beneficial exchanges and would be replicated in other key provinces of China,” added the statement.

After the ground-breaking ceremony, the ambassador had a round table interaction with representatives of Chinese enterprises belonging to diverse sectors, chambers of commerce and investment funds.
