‘CPEC to create 800,000 new jobs’

NAWABSHAH: A seminar was held at the Govt Girls Degree College here on Tuesday to highlight the benefits of the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) project. Ali Hyder, who is the focal person for the CPEC for Shaheed Benazirabad, Larkana and Sukkur divisions, addressed the seminar. 
Addressing the event, Ali Hyder said: “Those who opposed the CPEC project were now showing interest in joining it. With the completion of this project, the economy would boost and Pakistan would stand in line with the developed countries of the world, providing 800,000 new job opportunities. All the provinces would be benefited from the project; however, Sindh and Balochistan would be slightly more advantaged. Pakistanis living around the world are waiting for the completion of the project; this would also attract people from other countries, including the Khaleej and European countries, for jobs.” 
He said that the CPEC project would act as a game changer and it would also resolve the issue of energy in the country. Students from 16 colleges of the Shaheed Benazirabad, Larkana and Sukkur divisions took part in a speech contest. Few female students also sang Pak-China friendship songs. In the end of the event, the administration of the Govt Girls Degree College presented traditional gifts to the CPEC’s focal person and senior journalist Muhammad Anwar Shaikh
