The Karachi School of Business and Leadership (KSBL) along with Pehle Aap (Pvt) Ltd welcomed high-profile Chinese Delegates at a seminar on ‘CPEC –The Way Forward’. The seminar was held at the KSBL campus and was attended by leading members of Karachi’s intelligentsia and representatives of the agricultural industry.

It introduced a nationwide Agricultural Export project, promoted by Pehle Aap (Pvt) Limited. This project was conceived to uplift, source and trigger the export of agricultural products from Pakistan to China and other countries.

In this event, the discussion revolved around services of CPEC and the evolution of China from an economic condition similar to where Pakistan stands today, towards prosperity by ultimately focusing on export.

Pehle Aap Ltd CEO Amar Zafar Khan and Dean at KSBL Dr Zeeshan Ahmed hosted the auspicious visit of Chinese Delegates across Pakistan. They explained that through this project Pakistan’s agricultural, fisheries and livestock output would be boosted by the specialised Chinese companies, sourcing from farmers and exporting to China and other countries.

Apart from that, a complete E-marketing and supply chain infrastructure would be implemented by a major Chinese company that has executed similar structures across China. It was also highlighted that with this project the expected potential growth in the agricultural sector will not just benefit farmers and open avenues for skilled jobs for them, but will also make foreign exchange position of both the countries stronger.

The visiting Chinese delegation assessed Pakistan’s readiness and capacity to enter international markets. The project will create prosperity and skilled jobs in Pakistan’s rural sector starting with Agriculture, which has the highest potential of growth. This initiative will move on to other industries generating diversified avenues of foreign exchange
to our country, which is currently plagued with imports exceeding exports, an unsustainable foreign debt burden and rural poverty.

Wu Yongqiang, (Deputy Secretary General, All-China Youth Federation, Press and Publication Sector) was the principal speaker at the event. Along with him, the stalwart speakers from Chinese delegation included Sun Xiangyang (Chairman Yangming Technology Investment Company), Yao Zongchang (Chairman, Taidi Network Technology Co Ltd.) and Ms. Wu Xueqin (legal assistant and translator).

Speaking on the occasion Wu said, “CPEC is a transformative project which holds enormous potential for transforming lives of the people of both Pakistan and China. Starting from food exports and moving over to other products in the future, we look forward to providing new opportunities to both countries and will bring new impetus to the China-Pakistan friendship.”

He related how China had adopted several strategies to become a world leader in exports and described changes in values and attitudes that have emerged in China’s economic landscape with time. He further elaborated in his session that in the current context of global trade and Internet, economic change is in fact better placed than it was then to
support developing countries.

The China-Pakistan Economic Corridor Project (CPEC) offers comprehensive economic, trade, agriculture and e-commerce opportunities. Khan also shared that the seminar projected a vision that encompassed Pakistan’s desire to find sustainable solutions for its critical economic issues. He was of the opinion that agriculture offered high export growth potential, therefore it is the best starting point for Pakistan’s economic advancement and this collaboration with China in would bring tremendous benefits to both countries.
