Chinese President Xi Jinping Visiting Pakistan in April
Xi Jinping, the President of China will be visiting Pakistan for two days for what is seen as an effort to strengthen the political and economic ties among the two countries. He will arrive in Pakistan on April 20, Monday and will be staying there on Tuesday before leaving for Indonesia.
The visit of the Chinese President was postponed last year as mass anti-government demonstrations flared in the capital of the country.
As per schedule, President Xi Jinping will be addressing the parliament along with signing several agreements between the ally countries. Islamabad is expected to bag major infrastructure and energy projects from Beijing which could be a game changer for the government of Pakistan led by Prime Minister, Nawaz Sharif.
The President of China will be accompanied by a delegation of highest level. The Pakistan government is expecting an approximate $45 billion infrastructure investment from China involving road and rails that would stretch over 3000 km between Kashgar and Gwadar port, which is a deep sea port in Pakistan. The proposed Pak- China Economic Corridor project may lift the economic status of Pakistan, say many economists.
The investments from China is likely to bring a fresh spark to the national economy of Pakistan is terms of increased growth in GDP, which can move up to eight percent along with creating job opportunities.
