The agreement between China and Pakistan was signed in Beijing over the weekend, according to a brief statement released by the China National Space Administration (CNSA) and quoted by the nationalistic tabloid, Global Times.It was signed during the visit of Prime Minister Imran Khan who was in Beijing for the second Belt and Road Forum for International Cooperation.
ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan has concluded his official visit to China from 25 28 April 2019. The Prime Minister was visiting China at the invitation of President Xi Jinping to attend the Second Belt and Road Forum (BRF) and the Opening Ceremony of the Beijing International Horticulture Exhibition 2019, the Foreign Office said in a press release on Monday.The Prime Minister delivered a keynote speech at the Opening Ceremony of the BRF on 26 April 2019. He attended a banquet hosted by President Xi Jinping for the world leaders the same evening. The Prime Minister also delivered remarks at the first session of the Leaders Roundtable on 27 April 2019. The theme of the Roundtable was: Boosting Connectivity to Explore New Sources of Growth. In his statements, the Prime Minister inter alia proposed four new areas for Belt and Road cooperation: (i) digital connectivity; (ii) mobility of labour; (iii) cultural connectivity; and (iv) sharing best practices in knowledge and innovation.
The tone of this year;s meeting is far less triumphant than that of the first forum, held in 2017. While visiting Beijing last week, I was struck by the conciliatory language of slogans on propaganda banners and billboards touting the gathering: ;Peace and Cooperation; Openness and Inclusiveness; Mutual Learning and Mutual Benefit.;In a speech to the confab Friday, Xi sought to allay concerns that the initiative will saddle cooperating countries with unmanageable debts, create a one way street for Chinese exports, and damage the environment. "We must adhere to the concept of openness, greenness and cleanliness, " he declared. "Operate in the sun and fight corruption together with zero tolerance. "
CHINESE ENGINEERS are drilling their way through the green hills of Laos, clearing a path for a railway that one day may traverse South East Asia. Each time they complete a tunnel at least three times in the past month they hold a brief ceremony, waving Chinese flags for the cameras. They are celebrating not just their engineering success but also the evidence before them that the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI), China s global infrastructure building scheme, is making progress. The full railway is a long way off. Work has barely begun in Thailand, the next link. But the section in Laos should be in use by 2021.It will be a test of what many see as a big economic danger of the BRI: that it will saddle poor countries with unmanageable debts. China insists that its tens of billions of dollars in loans and investments are fostering global prosperity a message that it is sure to repeat to foreign leaders attending the second Belt and Road Forum, which takes place from April 25th to 27th in Beijing (pictured is a floral display marking the event). But worries about the cost of the BRI, a project closely linked with President Xi Jinping s foreign policy, have become widespread. Malaysia, Pakistan and Sierra Leone are among a growing list of countries that have delayed or scrapped China led projects.
