CPEC to help improve labor force in Pakistan: official


ISLAMABAD, Oct. 22 (Xinhua) -- Pakistan's Minister for Human Rights Shireen Mazari said Monday that the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) will help improve labor rights and labor situation in Pakistan.

Addressing a ceremony in Islamabad, the minister said when CPEC moves beyond road construction to enter into the building process of economic zones, the standard of workforce will be raised in Pakistan.

"As special economic zones are coming to play, multinational enterprises will bring corporate social responsibility with them. With the bringing in of great corporate social responsibility, we will see the rise and improvement in the standard of workforce, including the women workforce."

The minister said the new Pakistani government fully supports CPEC and they believe it will contribute to Pakistan and its economy.

"One thing should be made categorically clear, and that is also the position of our government, that CPEC is here to stay and it can only move forward."

The minister said the China-proposed Belt and Road Initiative is a starting point of a wide regional network of economic cooperation and development where people will no more be dependent on the far away lands.

"(Under CPEC), Indigenous enterprises and indigenous development become stronger and stronger, and that is an extremely positive sign for the future of our region and Pakistan," said the minister.

Mazari said she is optimistic that CPEC will provide a wide range of employment opportunities for Pakistani women, hoping the project will include greater technical education and vocational training for women to find employment in CPEC projects.

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…
