CPEC is a major part of BRI

According to China’s top economic planner 86 countries and international organizations have signed one hundred cooperation agreements with China under the Belt and Road initiative (BRI). He Lifeng, head of the National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC), noted that Pakistan is among the top countries to side by China from the very start in order to  turn the dream of the World’s connectivity plan into a reality.
Pakistan is now coming into limelight in the international community thanks to the CPEC which is a major part of the BRI, he added.
Progress was made in the CPEC development, the Mombasa-Nairobi railway is now working, construction has started on the Belgrade – Stara Pazova section of the Hungary-Serbia railway and the Khalifa Port in the UAE and the operation of the Hambantota Port has been handed to a Chinese company as well.

As per He, over 7,000 cargo train trips have been made between China and Europe so far.

He further said that in the coming year the NDRC will focus on the implementation of agreements reached at the Belt and Road Forum for International Cooperation that took place in Beijing back in May.
