China’s Ambassador to Pakistan Sun Weidong Sunday said the passage going through western part of Pakistan to Gwadar is definitely part of China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC).

Speaking at an event at Pak-China Friendship Centre here to welcome participants of a car rally arriving from Chinese region of Ningxia he said CPEC is for Pakistan as a whole with multiple passages and it brings benefits to all Pakistani people.

“As we see it all the routes lead to development and prosperity. Under the Belt and Road Initiatives CPEC will make its contribution to reviving the Silk Road Spirit,” he added.

He said in 2013 Chinese President Xi Jinping proposed the Belt and Road Initiatives reviving the great Silk Road Spirit.

Sun Weidong said as the major and pilot project of the Belt and Road Initiative China Pakistan Economic Corridor has entered into full implementation with remarkable progress.

He said that sixteen early harvest projects are under consideration with total investment of 13.6 billion USD and tens of thousands of new jobs have been created for local people.

He said this year marks the 65th anniversary of China Pakistan diplomatic ties and events like car rally can further the win-win cooperation and make the Silk Road spirit shine again in the new era.

He said the participants of the rally travelled more than 7000km all the way from Ningxia and they are the real advocates of the great Silk Road spirit.
