ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan on Friday said that if Pakistan had to become industrialised then its best ally was China to help it learn and develop in this sector.
Imran Khan said this while addressing the launching ceremony of introducing cars in Pakistan. The Chinese ambassador was also present on this occasion.
PM Imran reiterated the story of development of China from rags to riches. He said Pakistan had to follow the same model to evacuate the citizens from poverty. He said China made the fastest development in the last 35 years.
“We have to go to the International Monetary Fund (IMF) because our imports increase and exports slump,” he said.
He apprised that the Pakistan Tehreek e Insaf (PTI)’s first year was spent in stabilizing the economy and the second year was spent in protecting people from covid and hunger.
“Our biggest fear was that the lower strata of society will be grounded amid the economic crisis,” he said.
He said the federal government had established special economic zones, and they would try to attract the Chinese investment in those economic zones.
“Our cement sale has risen to record level. Meanwhile, after so many years textile industry is working to its full capacity,” he said.
