Traders hail govt decision to stand by CPEC


September 14, 2018

ISLAMABAD : Islamabad Chamber of Small Traders on Friday welcomed the decision of the government to stand by CPEC which has put rumours to rest.

Recent statements by some government functionaries had created an impression that CPEC agreements will be reviewed which resulted in uncertainty which is now settled, it said.

CPEC is an integral part of the country’s economic future which cannot be compromised under any circumstances, said Patron Islamabad Chamber of Small Traders Shahid Rasheed Butt.

The recent move of the government has disappointed opponents of CPEC, he said, adding that one of the best ways to address concerns and reservations over the CPEC is making the whole process transparent.

Enhanced clarity will allay concerns of Pakistani business community a good part of which is suspicious about the project as they consider it will not be as beneficial as claimed by the politicians.

Shahid Rasheed Butt said that the suspicions are supported by unnecessary secrecy and the fact that FTA with China inked during Musharraf’s regime resulted in colossal losses to Pakistan.

The local trade and industry have repeatedly alleged that the FTA is lopsided in China’s favour and now Chinese companies are enjoying an unfair advantage over local firms.

It may be mentioned that the PML-N government tried its best to make FTA-II balanced but failed due to the determined attitude of Chinese negotiators.

The best way to tackle rumours and misunderstanding about the project is to make all deals transparent that would silence CPEC critics, he demanded.

Islamabad and Beijing should fully support CPEC and masses should stand firmly behind it but the image of the project should be safeguarded through transparency as a fall in its popularity at this juncture will be unfortunate.

The Rise of China-Europe Railways

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…
