The PMU provides a much-needed platform for multi-sector coordination, matchmaking, consultation and policy formulation. It has enhanced capacity to provide policy and governance advice to support Federal, Provincial Regional Governments for establishment and relocation of industries besides attracting foreign direct investment (FDI) in various potential sectors & SEZs of Pakistan.

Impact Of Industrial Cooperation Under CPEC

 

  • Industrial Cooperation in the second phase of CPEC would pave way for the transfer of technology and export-led labor-intensive industrialization
  • During the first phase, Pakistan witnessed an immense contribution of CPEC to the country’s energy portfolio
  • Establishment of special economic zone (SEZs) under CPEC would ensure optimal utilization of Pakistan’s potential in natural resources and improve Sino-Pakistan business linkages
  • Development of industrial cluster under CPEC would transform Pakistan’s economy by not only curbing its current account deficit and trade deficit, but also by ensuring a sustainable long-term growth
  • SEZs have the potential to take CPEC’s benefits to less developed regions of the country and accelerate socio-economic development
