CM Sindh reviews CPEC projects


Sindh Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah, while presiding over a meeting on the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor CPEC at the CM House, has said his government is working hard to develop the Dhabeji Special Economic Zone and complete the feasibility study of the Karachi Circular Railway so that both projects could be included in the execution list of CPEC projects.

The chief minister told that he already had directed the chief secretary to convene a meeting of the Land Reserve Committee to reserve 1,000 acres for the Special Economic Zone at Dhabeji. “Once the land is reserved, a meeting of development committee would be convened to plan development of the zone,” he said and added that he had adopted a fast-track policy to develop the economic zone and by March the project would be sent to the CPEC projects executing committee.

He said his government was going to develop one-window facilities for investment in Sindh. “We are also planning to organise an investment conference to highlight opportunities in the province,” he said.

Zafar Mahmood, special envoy of Pakistan in Beijing, also attended the meeting while the other participants of the meeting included Transport Minister Syed Nasir Shah, ACS (Dev) M Waseem, Principal Secretary to CM Naveed Kamran Baloch, Transport Secretary Taha Farooqui and Energy Secretary Agha Wasif.
