PM to talk economic, defence cooperation during China visit in November

ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan will reach China on November 3 for a three-day visit where he will meet Chinese president and high-level officials.
The PM is expected to hold talks over economic and defence cooperation as well as China-Pakistan Economic Corridor projects.
In addition, the premier will also attend the Chinese International Import Expo 2018 in Shanghai on November 5.
This is PM Imran’s third visit to a foreign country after assuming office. He went on an official visit to Saudi Arabia and from there to the United Arab Emirates in September.
Early this month, Chinese Ambassador to Pakistan Yao Jing told Reuters that the country was open to the changes proposed by the new, Prime minister Imran Khan-led Pakistani government and “will definitely follow their agenda” to work out a roadmap for BRI projects based on “mutual consultation”.
