In an interview, he said the first phase of CPEC envisages projects relating to road infrastructure, railways and energy sectors. These projects are expected to be completed by the end of this year.

He said the 2nd phase of CPEC envisages establishment of economic zones, which will bolster industrial growth in the country.

Hassan Daud said that nine zones will be established in all the provinces including FATA. Feasibility reports are being finalized for these zones. He said the provincial governments are taking interest in the economic zones which will go a long way in boosting Pakistan’s industrial production.

Replying to a question about the development of Balochistan under CPEC, the Project Director said Gwadar would become the Hub of business activities in the region.

Hassan Daud appreciated outreach of Radio Pakistan and said it has played very important role in promoting CPEC in the positive way.

He said that construction work on Multan-Sukhur motorway is in full swing.

The Project Director said all the projects will open new era of development and create job opportunities in the country.

He said top five universities of the both courtiers will be linked for research purpose.

He said nine Pakistan study centers would be established in the Chinese universities while China has already established its centers in our universities. Vocational training centers are also being set up to take full advantage of the opportunities to be generated by the CPEC related project
