BEIJING: Associate Professor from Pakistan Study Centre at Fudan university of Shanghai, Zhang Jiegen has shown satisfaction on the rejection of statement delivered by British newspaper Financial Times about China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) which quoted Abdul Razak Dawood Federal Minsiter for Commerce and Textile Industry.
While commenting on the rejection of statement, Zhang also suggested that higher officials from Ministry of planning, development and Reform and Ministry of Foreign affairs should also clear their positions on CPEC which is vital for its smooth implementation.
He stated that new Pakistani government must show its commitment to CPEC projects by announcing that steadfast policy will be implemented without any hesitation.
He mentions that both governments need more frank policy communication and engagements on CPEC for avoiding misunderstandings and it should be kept away from media.
He suggested that positive aspects of CPEC projects must be highlighted following the meaningful and result oriented consultations which may be more productive.
CPEC is co-project from two countries, which is not only a historic opportunity for Pakistan to develop itself but this is also a very important for China and its whole Belt and Road Initiative (BRI).
We should not give any opportunity to western media who are always looking chances to write negative about CPEC.
He also told thatPakistani media must play vital role in countering negative reports from western media.
