ISLAMABAD, Nov. 6 (Xinhua) -- China and Pakistan have agreed here on Tuesday to further their cooperation in different fields under the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) during the ninth Joint Cooperation Committee (JCC) meeting of CPEC.

Pakistani Minister of Planning, Development and Reforms Khusro Bakhtiar said in the opening remarks that this year was a significant year for CPEC as several significant milestones were achieved or will be achieved by the end of the year.

"The recent visits of Prime Minister Imran Khan and his interaction with Chinese leadership has, in true sense, broadened and enhanced the scope of future cooperation in diverse fields of agriculture, industrial and socio-economic development," he told around 200 participants who came from both sides' governments, finance institutes and companies.

The minister said that CPEC is a corridor which opens doors of cooperation to the whole region and beyond, adding his country has established CPEC Authority which will work as a one window for all CPEC related issues so that the Pakistani government can fasten the pace of projects and remove all bottle necks for efficient implementation of the projects.

For his part, Ning Jizhe, deputy head of the National Development and Reform Commission, said during the meeting that both sides' leaderships have reached important consensus over bilateral cooperation in all domains and pointed out the future direction of bilateral ties.

Ning said that in a short time, CPEC has achieved a series of remarkable achievements and have been ushered into an extending phase of high quality development.

"The Chinese side will implement the consensus reached by the leaders of both sides and will enhance coordination, strengthen mutual trust so as to achieve more pragmatic results under CPEC and to forge a closer China-Pakistan community of shared future in the new era," said the Chinese official.

During the meeting, CPEC working groups in energy, transportation infrastructure, industrial cooperation, Gwadar Port and social-economic sectors reported progresses have been done in the areas and reached a series of agreements.

The two sides also signed and exchanged cooperation documents on health, youth exchanges and Gwadar Port development.

Earlier on Tuesday, Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan also held a meeting with Ning.

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.

Just 10 years ago, regular direct freight services from China to Europe did not exist.2 Today, they connect roughly 35 Chinese…
