Prime Minister Imran Khan to reach China on Nov 3


ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan on November 3 will reach China for a three-day visit, during which he will meet the Chinese president as well as other high officials.

The premier is expected to discuss economic and defence cooperation as well as the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) projects with the Chinese leadership.

Moreover, PM Khan will attend the Chinese International Import Expo 2018 in Shanghai on November 5.

This is PM Khan’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 (UAE) in September.

Earlier this month, Chinese Ambassador to Pakistan Yao Jing had said that Beijing was open to the changes in mutual cooperation projects proposed by the Imran Khan-led government and “will definitely follow their agenda” to work out a roadmap for BRI projects based on “mutual consultation”.
