ISLAMABAD, Mar 17 (SABAH): President Pakistan Businessmen and Intellectuals Forum (PBIF), President AKIA, Senior Vice Chairman of the Businessmen Panel of FPCCI and former Provincial Minister Mian Zahid Hussain on Friday said national GDP will jump to fifteen percent after completion of economic corridor.
He said that conspirators are not only hurting the project but also keeping Pakistani and foreign investors away from the game-changing project.
Mian Zahid Hussain said that increased transparency will lure investors to the project and they will participate in it with full zeal.
He said that government should make environment more business friendly to boost investment which is presently not very conducive.
The business leader noted that CPEC has opened new vistas of business resulting in reduced unemployment while its operationalisation will boost business activities, employment and investment.
CPEC will unleash a new era of prosperity in Pakistan and people from other countries will prefer to come and work in Pakistan, he hoped.
The project is resulting in increased cooperation between Pakistan and China and soon we will see Chinese banks, hotels, theatres, clubs and media in Pakistan, he said, adding that enemies of the project should be discouraged so that both countries can benefit from full potential of the project.
Government should be ready to face the all challenges arising from the project as business community will support Govt.
Gwadar, a fishing town will no longer remain insignificant but it is transforming into one of the most successful economic city of the world.
CPEC is the only project which will help Pakistan to fulfil the dream of becoming an Asian Tiger, said Mian Zahid Hussain.
