ISLAMABAD: Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Mian Saqib Nisar said on Thursday that the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) was a flagship project of One-Belt One-Road Initiative and the country’s judiciary fully supported it and was committed to taking measures to ease out commercial disputes for smooth implementation of the CPEC projects.

He said this during a meeting with President and Chief Justice of the Supreme People’s Court of China Zhou Qiang in Beijing, according to the press release. The CJP is on an official visit to China to attend the 13th meeting of the presidents/chief justices of the supreme courts of the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation’s member states.

The CJP said relations between Pakistan and China were supported by the peoples of both countries. He apprised Mr Zhou of the implementation of a memorandum of understanding signed between the judicial institutions of the two countries during the visit of the chief justice to China last year.

The judicial cooperation betw­e­en the two countries had started gaining momentum and there was a huge potential for bilateral exchanges in the fields of arbitration, judicial training, automation of judicial systems and use of technology, he added. He said the Sup­reme Court of Pakistan (SCP) had recently held a detailed meeting of all federal departments/ministries with special focus on CPEC.

He maintained that Pakistan-China relations enjoyed full confidence of the leadership of the two countries and bilateral cooperation between the two countries had transformed into a comprehensive strategic partnership.

CJP Nisar also invited Mr Zhou to visit Pakistan to attend the upcoming judicial conference on arbitration.

He was accompanied by Justice Azmat Saeed and Justice Umer Ata Bandial during the meeting.

Mr Zhou was accompanied by Pei Xianding, heaad of the criminal tribunal in China, and Yang Qingming, president of Beijing High Peoples Court.

The Rise of China-Europe RailwaysMarch 6, 2018The Dawn of a New Commercial Era?For over two millennia, technology and politics have shaped trade across the Eurasian supercontinent. The compass and domesticated camels helped the “silk routes” emerge between 200 and 400 CE, and peaceful interactions between the Han and Hellenic empires allowed overland trade to flourish. A major shift occurred in the late fifteenth century, when the invention of large ocean-going vessels and new navigation methods made maritime trade more competitive. Mercantilism and competition among Europe’s colonial powers helped pull commerce to the coastlines. Since then, commerce between Asia and Europe has traveled primarily by sea.1Against this historical backdrop, new railway services between China and Europe have emerged rapidly. Just 10 years ago, regular direct freight services from China to Europe did not exist.2 Today, they connect roughly 35 Chinese…
