Chairman of the China Overseas Port Holding Company said that CPEC is the feature of Pakistan. The locals of Gawadar can reap maximum benefits from it. While talking about the Job ratios of local and Chinese employees, he said that the maximum jobs would be given to locals. Already 2000 locals have been working on various CPEC projects, and all the significant job positions have given to the local peoples including senior executive positions, contrary to the common perception.
Chairman of the China Overseas Port Holding Company says that it has offered more than 2,000 jobs including a majority of the senior positions to local people since its operation in Gwadar.
Chairman and chief executive officer of the company, Zhang Bao Zhong in an interview in Beijing said the local people take the majority of the senior positions.
He said that in so doing they are following President Xi Jinping vision about China-Pakistan Economic Corridor according to which all people should benefit from CPEC.
The Chairman said a state of the art school, vocational training institute, 50-bed hospital and recruitment of a considerable number of locals in ongoing development projects are the benefits being offered to around twenty-six hundred thousand people of Gwadar.
He also criticised the last government for not taking care of the local people.
