On the occasion, the ambassador said that renowned Chinese company Adidas was shifting its entire production chain in Lahore.

He said that China would establish 300MW power plant and a desalination plant in Gwadar.

Turning down the wrong impression of Western media about CPEC, Yao Jing said that China has no military or strategic intentions in Pakistan.

Speaking on the occasion, Yao Jing said that the multibillion dollars China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) project will help develop Pakistan’s infrastructure.

He said, “CPEC represents deep and historical relationship between Pakistan and China.”

The ambassador said that Beijing was cooperating with Pakistan in various sectors, including education, profession training, agriculture and technology transfer.
