Pakistan-China Economic Corridor (CPEC) has achieved massive hype in recent months and for all good reasons. It is being billed as a project that will bring more economic activities to Pakistan, and give a boost to power and infrastructure projects in the country as well.
To continue the good work between Pakistan and China, and to provide authoritative and comprehensive information about CPEC, an official website about the same has been launched.
Pakistan-China Institute (PCI) is responsible for developing the official website of CPEC, in coordination with China Radio International (CRI).
Both countries will jointly contribute in maintaining the CPEC website.
An event was conducted to announce the launch of the CPEC website, where likes of Chinese Ambassador Sun Wi Dong and PCI’s chairman Senator Mushahid Hussain Syed were also present.
“The PCI has devised a comprehensive CPEC information collection and verification mechanism, which will involve the stakeholders of the CPEC, enhance their knowledge about the bilateral collaboration, and enrich their interaction for mutual gains,” said Sayed.
Mushahid also added that Pakistan will continue to benefit from the CPEC partnership in years to come.

Chinese Ambassador was also asked to say a few words at the event. He stated:
“This new website will become an important source of comprehensive information for all the people who want to learn more about CPEC,” adding that “I am also convinced that this new website will help build up more support and consensus on CPEC among the people of Pakistan in the future.”
Sun Wi Dong also revealed that around 10,000 local people have gained employment through 17 projects of CPEC.
