ISLAMABAD: The Saudi energy minister will soon visit Pakistan to sign a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to establish an oil refinery in Pakistan, apart from finalizing other major projects in which Saudi Arabia has shown interest.

This was said by Saudi Ambassador to Pakistan Nawaf Bin Said Al-Malkiy, who paid a courtesy call on President Dr Arif Alvi on Tuesday.

The MoU is set to be signed between Pakistan State Oil (PSO) and Riyadh’s state oil giant Saudi Aramco. Gwadar port is being developed as part of the $60 billion China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC), an ambitious plan to build energy and transport links connecting the western Chinese region of Xinjiang with the Arabian Sea via Pakistan, as part of Beijing’s broader Belt and Road initiative.

Welcoming the ambassador, the president underlined the close, cordial and brotherly relations that exist between Saudi Arabia and Pakistan and highlighted different areas of the economy where Saudi investors can invest. The president, in particular, stressed the need for exchange of more business delegations between the two countries, adding that the ambassador could play a critical role in increasing the bilateral trade.

President Alvi lauded the role of Pakistan’s armed forces for eliminating terrorism from the country, which resulted in the establishment of durable peace and revival of the economy.

The Saudi ambassador briefed the president on the successful visits of the prime minister to Saudi Arabia, which resulted in enhanced and multi-faceted economic cooperation between the two countries.

He appreciated the peace and stability prevalent in Pakistan and steps taken by the government to invite foreign investors to invest in various sectors of economy.

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…
